AL-RA'ED Dictionary

Cover design (unpublished)

Cover design for the dictionary series AL-RA’ED commissioned by Hachette Antoine.

A stylized typographic treatment of the word 'Al-Ra'ed' becomes a visual emblem that ties the family of dictionaries together.

About the dictionary
Al-Ra'ed is the first Arabic dictionary to sort all words alphabetically – rather than the roots of the word and origins. Al-Ra'ed is adopted in many schools in the Middle East and North Africa region.

About the publisher Hachette Antoine is a joint venture between international French publishing leader Hachette Livre (founded 1826) and Lebanese Librairie Antoine, a reputed bookstore dating back to 1933.
