Al-Akhbar Newspaper - issue 1496 - 25 Aug 2011

Samandal 11 Launched

25 Aug, 2011 

“Samandal magazine editors have always ensured that the cover page be a work of art in and of itself,” writes Sanaa Khoury in her exclusive report for Al-Akhbar newspaper about the 11th edition of Samandal, launched on July 22nd 2011. “In this edition, the designer is Swiss-Lebanese artist Alex Baladi who, with his wide-ranging practice and sophisticated experience in the field, has rendered an exceptional perforated cover. Baladi draws in the center of the cover buildings of the capital city (Beirut), while the characters from the magazine are breaking through the ground and rising up into outer space.”

 

In addition to the cover’s creative design, Samandal 11 tackles a wide variety of issues on pages ornamented with new designs and illustration techniques. The first pages of this edition are dedicated to two stories written and illustrated by Mo’taz Sawaf, “one of the most well-known Lebanese illustrators from the dawn of the 70s.”
