    The guns in Aleppo have fallen silent. At some point, the war of bombs and bullets and the interior war of one ideology against another will come to an end and Syrians of all stripes will look to their common heritage to rebuild their society.

    Aleppo may be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. Its ancient Citadel, covered market, and Umayyad mosque are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

    In this "children's book for adults," a long time resident of Aleppo takes a tour of the old quarter and provides historical sketches and photos for those who value what was lost and are eager to see the treasures of Aleppo rebuilt and a vigorous civil society restored.

    Twenty-five paintings by Helen Zughaib accompanied by text based on favorite stories told by her father about life in Syria and Lebanon in the 1930s and during World War II.
     
    Helen's father was born in the Old Quarter of Damascus during Ottoman times, when Le Grande Syrie included the lands that are now demarked  as Syria and Lebanon. His father and mother, first cousins in an arranged marriage, were from the villages of Zahle and Durer Shweir in the Lebanese mountains.

    "Let me tell you a story," Helen's father used to say. What followed were absorbing tales of her father's childhood in Damascus, village life in Lebanon in the late 1930s, amusing relatives, happenings the traditions of in their local Greek Orthodox Church, and major events in her father's young life that lead him to emigrate to the United States in 1946.

    Helen Zughaib is an award-winning artist who has developed a distinctive technique working in gouache and ink. She was born in Beirut and, educated in the Middle East, Paris, and the US. She is currently based in Washington.

    Zughaib uses folkloric elements and a wide variety of other visual references to express the life and outlook of her family, the village community of her father's young adult life, and her position as an international woman with special insight and empathy for the Middle East and its people.

    Critics note the parallels between Zughaib's work as an artist with Arab roots to the art of contemporary "Native, Latin, and African American communities." (Maymanah Farhat)

    Mats Svensson is a photographer and writer who has lived in the occupied Palestinian territories. The evidence of his lens and the words of the Palestinians he quotes depict a state of apartheid just a few hours’ flight from Paris, London, Oslo, Geneva--and Washington. Will the high minded ideals of the West come to the rescue? Or will a downward spiral that violates all precepts of justice and humanity continue with increasing dark and deadly force?

    APARTHEID IS A CRIME, Portraits of the Israeli Occupation of Palestine is a remarkable book about an evil that we all believed had disappeared: apartheid. An evil created by a government that believes it stands above international law. Mats Svensson, a Swedish writer and photo artist, has merged his own words with black and white photos, and combined these with voices from around the world. He has created a piece of art that challenges the habitual discourse on Israel and Palestine. It contrasts the created media illusions and  distortions of lies surrounding the never-ending conflict.
     
    Mats Svensson has created a book that describes how he as a diplomat was part of a system that generated servants that were docile, obedient as sheep. That he worked to build  a state under occupation, to revive an already dead peace process by supporting the Palestinian security services, democratic elections and refugees. While he worked, Palestine was disappearing. Before him, Palestine became smaller and smaller. He knew that it was too late, but avoided talking about it. Palestine was disappearing while the number of refugees kept growing.
    This is a book that tells us all to dig deep into our prejudices; it forces us to take action to search for a common solution. It deals with our own consciousness and gives us a story that we are all part of.

    Putting It All Together reviews The Design Code Process ®, an idea-generating system developed by northwest artist and educator, Fred Griffin. Griffin's approach makes it possible for professional graphic designers and illustrators - as well as students and lay artists - to turn out fresh ideas and great designs on deadline.

    This book is for two types of readers: those with an understanding of design and experience in the field—and those with interest and entry level skills who have never studied design. For experienced artists and designers, this book is a tool to lift oneself out of a creative dry spell. For those who are new to thinking to design, it also serves as a primer in the basics of composition. For either type of reader, these are books that you can return to again and again for inspiration and practical guidance.
