Brownbook Nr. 65
The Manama Issue
For its latest issue, Brownbook explores the Bahraini capital, Manama, and its twin city Muharraq, with a focus on their architectural landmarks, communities and craft workshops. Residents share their memories of three neighbourhoods in transition, which once revolved around fishing and pearl trades.
Brownbook is a bimonthly magazine that acts as an urban guide to the Middle East and North Africa. The magazine has endured a decade within its field, researching hundreds of cities in the region and Arab diasporas around the world. Over the ten years of publishing, the magazine in its own pace has gone through radical editorial and design changes, but maintained its stand first as an observer of the region’s urban evolution. The magazine focuses on three main genres; Interviews, Architecture & Cities.
