The Books of Faragh A monthly illustrated dispatch from Caram
Faragh/فراغ (Ar): emptiness, vacuum, a free space
Vol 5: Of May and Be
Books of Faragh/Kutub el Faragh are dispatches based in observations drawn from a subjective reality in the course of a calendar month. Based in the traditions of cartoonists and writers such as R.Crumb, H. Pekar and J. Sacco, with pinches of M. Satrapi, G. Delisle, and R. Sattouf, these books follow no particular aim. Meandering between social observation, documentation, hope and the surreal speed of living in the 21st century, these "diaries" are little escapes into reflection, de(re-)construction and distilling every day into memory.
Printed in black and white every second of the month.
