Printed in Jerusalem: Mustamloun (Exhibition catalogue)
Baha Jubeh and guest curator Abdel-Rahman Shabane/ The Palestinian Museum
20.5 x 29 cm/ Print Length: 184 pages

Launched in July 2020 and ongoing until 28 February 2021, Printed in Jerusalem: Mustamloun was organised in partnership with Jerusalem’s Palestinian Heritage Museum – Dar al-Tifel al-Arabi and curated by Baha Jubeh and guest curator Abdel-Rahman Shabane. The bilingual catalogue elaborates the exhibition’s primary themes and documents its underpinning research. The exhibition explores the relation between Jerusalemites and publications printed in their city by probing the ancient profession of the mustamly. In addition to the main concept of the exhibition and its main sections, the catalogue includes: an essay titled “Early Printing Presses and their Impact on the Development of Palestinian Culture”, by historian and researcher Mohammed Suleiman; a chapter from writer Mahmoud Shukair’s qalat lana al-Quds (Jerusalem Told Us), titled “Jerusalem and the Alterations to Its Streets”; and a reference timeline outlining significant political events as well as the printing presses established in Jerusalem since 1825.
