Middle East Peace Card

I created this card to send out to friends and family for the holidays in 2009.

The text is the word for “Peace” in 15 languages of the Middle East. The individual tile designs and background pattern are from pottery and mosaic patterns I found originating in different Middle Eastern countries. The shapes of the tiles reflect the general outlines of 5 of the bodies of water that surround the Middle East region.

The cover design for this card was featured on page 11 of the Washington Calligrapher’s Guild’s Nov/Dec 2016 newsletter, which you can check out here.
