Series identity & book design


'Syrian Traditional Music' by Hassan Abbas, researcher at the American University of Beirut, is a 300+ page book highlighting the large variety of musical traditions in the country and their continued transmission in times of crisis.

This book is written in the framework of UNESCO’s Emergency Safeguarding of the Syrian Cultural Heritage project, which aims, first and foremost, at “restoring social cohesion, stability and sustainable development through the protection and safeguarding of cultural heritage in view of the on-going and growing destruction and loss of Syria's rich and unique cultural heritage”.
