The book is part of an ongoing commemoration of the suicide bombing of Al-Mutanabbi Street in Baghdad five years ago.

The street is the heart of Baghdad’s literary culture.

It is named after a famous 9th century Persian poet.

The project began with a group of over 200 broadsides designed by artists from the U.S. And several other countries.

The broadsides have been displayed at several venues during the past two years.

Both books and broadsides are scheduled to exhibited in Cairo, Egypt, in the next year, as well as many other locations.
