Over the past 150 years, Beirut has witnessed a cycle of unbridled growth, war, economic and social crises and migratory movements.

It is in this territory ceaselessly destroyed and

Disclosing the survey of 744 buildings, the collection of archives and testimonies, a PhD thesis and the creation of photographic tableaux with the subjects surrounded by sagging furniture and mounds of rubbish, the process that constitutes the present book proposes new perspectives towards the city as well as instruments to reclaim it at times it is confronted with various forms of violence.

Book: Beirut by Day, by Tania Hadjithomas Mehanna
Brand: Tamyras
$70
This book is not a history book. It is a walk through the geographical space that is my universe. A cry of love, a cry for help; sometimes I do not recognize my city. And sometimes at the corner of a street, in someones face, I stumble on it, Beirut, so generous and unique. Sweet and bitter Beirut.

Many of us entertain a love-hate relationship with this city. I love you, I hate you, I'm leaving, Im coming back. There are so many things to be said about Beirut. But Im tired of myths and clichs, tired of nodding agreeably when spoken to of the Phoenix, of the city that is reborn from its ashes. I want my city to be saved. I no longer wish for it to die and be reborn. Im tired of labels.

Living in Beirut isnt enough. You have to live Beirut, to walk its streets, travel its highways, speak to its inhabitants, remember its history, hold on to what is left of it in your arms and shed light on its monuments, bring out its soul.

In Arabic, the word for neighborhood is Hay, and Hay means alive. The neighborhoods of Beirut are indeed alive. Each is distinct, with its different moods, troubles and joys, with Others just a few paces away. These Others that hold a piece of us.

Traveling through my citys 51 neighborhoods has left a strong mark on my Beiruti identity. I belong to no other city. Beirut isnt an idea. It is not impossible. Beirut is a challenge. It exists. It wakes up every morning and hurries through the day.

Its too often talked about in the past, with a tremor in the voice of those who are hanging on to bygone sterile times. Its also spoken of in the future, with uncertainty. But in this book Beirut is spoken of in the present, a cry of love; all that I have to offer.

Book: Chateau Musar The Story of a Wine Icon
New Release
Brand: N/A
$40
Chateau Musars story is one of war, hardship and utter determination in the face of chaos and destruction. Serge Hochar, the heroic Lebanese winemaker who stood by his wines through the 15 years of civil war (19751990) dodging shells and road-blocks to get his precious grapes to safety, knew that his wines were among the brightest stars in the world wine firmament. Today we look at the uniquely complex (and often miraculous) wines he created and begin to understand how and why Serge worked in the way he did. Only now, in a new era of Natural Wines do we fully appreciate what he was trying to achieve

Our new book celebrates Chateau Musar its history, its terroir, the philosophy of its winemaker, and the legacy that the Hochar family (Ronald, Gaston, Marc and Ralph) continue today alongside its remarkable catalogue of vintages and stunning new releases from the winery in 2020.

Musar has attracted a loyal fan base around the world since Michael Broadbent first discovered the wine in 1979. Today, vintage collectors, food lovers, A-list sommeliers and the many of us who look for a wine with something distinctively different to say, are drawn to its unique character and fashionably hands-off approach to viticulture and winemaking. Our new title charts Musars journey from Lebanese rising star to global taste sensation.
