Derambakhsh’s ‘Pictorial Tales’ to Be Unveiled

A collection of drawings by acclaimed Iranian cartoonist and graphic designer Kambiz Derambakhsh, titled ‘Pictorial Tales’ (in Persian: Dastanhaye Didani), is to be unveiled on February 20, at the Cultural Center of Book City Institute in Tehran.
The work in 1,100 copies has been published by Donya-e-Eqtesad Publications, a sister publication of the Financial Tribune.
Derambakhsh, 75, compiled it last year and it was expected to be unveiled at the 29th edition of the Tehran International Book Fair (May 4-14, 2016). But instead, the book went for review at the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.
For almost 60 years, Derambakhsh’s artworks have been published in domestic and foreign media. The latest collection has been previously published in ‘Negah-e-Nou’ quarterly magazine and ‘Hamshahri-Dastan’ monthly, according to the publisher.
Writer, poet, literary and visual art critic Javad Mojabi, 77, has written a foreword to the 208-page work: “The book is a co-existence of multiplicity and oneness, narrated with the magical lines of Kambiz Derambakhsh.”
Mojabi will be present at the unveiling ceremony, along with the author himself who will sign the books. Another notable participant is documentarian Kamran Shirdel, 78.
The 2-hour ceremony is open to all enthusiasts and starts at 4 pm. The venue is located at Ahmad Qasir Street, north of Beheshti Street.
