Sublime landscapes, tranquil urban scenes, frolicking children; who would associate these images with Palestine. All too often the Western media show the country's gloomy side, and Palestinians as aggressors. It is this that makes identifying with them very difficult.
The Dutch designer Annelys de Vet invited Palestinian artists, photographers and designers to map their country as they see it. Given their closeness to the subject, this has resulted in unconventional, very human expressions of the landscape and the architecture, the cuisine, the music and the poetry of thought and expression. The drawings, maps and photographs made for the atals reveal individual life experiences; from preparing chickpeas to a manual on water pipe smoking, from historic dress to modern music. Pages containing humorous and caustic newspaper cartoons and invented Palestinian currency alternate with colourful cultural diaries and moving letters from prisoners.
