Editor Sakhr Al-Makhadhi explains this cover:
"This cover tells the story of the man redesigning the Arabic language. Until recently, there were only a handful of Arabic language fonts. The reason is that Arabic is script, unlike English, which can use moveable type. Now, Pascal Zoghbi is doing for Arabic what the printing press did for English. Very exciting"
