  • Al Quds / Jerusalem

    Book of 9 drawings based on maps of Jerusalem. Printed on oiled paper. Open Edition. 2016.

    The Hebrew name for Jerusalem is ירושלים [Yerushalayim], the Arabic name for the city is القُدس [Al Quds]. Israelis and Palestinians both claim Jerusalem as their capital, however, neither claim is widely recognized internationally. This book contains 9 drawings based on historical maps of the city printed on oiled paper so that the images layer on each other as the pages turn. It is a reversible book and can be viewed by opening in any direction. As the oil ages it will turn slowly into a faded yellow.
