Fantasy Pop Process

1001 Fantasy pop nights zine process

The result of a collaboration between Latifa Al Kuwari, Sarah Al-Afifi, Reham Ahmed, Sarah Elawad and Nathan Ross Davis, the fantasy pop zine uses text from the original Arabian Nights stories and remixed imagery from the Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum (FBQ) in Doha.

This book is the first screen printed book to be produced in Qatar, and is printed with two glow in the dark inks, silver metallic and green. We are grateful to Shabeer, Mr. Vincent and all the people at Printec who contributed to the production of this project. They learned and we learned, and we all enjoyed the process of producing this historic book.

This publication was sponsored by an Undergraduate Research Grant at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar and published by Water With Water.
