Beirut-based design team Maya Moumne and Hatem Imam founded Safar in 2014 with the intention of highlighting cultural production and exchange in Lebanon and the region. The name Safar — meaning ‘travel’ in Arabic — refers to notions of communication, especially across cultural and linguistic boundaries, that the bilingual Arabic-English journal seeks to engage and promote. This issue explores nostalgia.


In this issue:


  • Vintage Lebanese movie posters from the 50s, 60s and 70s
  • A history of the cedar tree, symbol of Lebanon
  • An interview with RuPaul about the ascendence of drag
  • Beirut’s architectural heritage and its demon
  • An interview with Jonathan Barnbrook about his work on David Bowie’s albums
