I love these images by illustrator Kaori Yamamoto: A to Z About Syria. The colours, and the prominence of food in this cultural alphabet ~ rose jam, pistachios and other nuts, ice creams, olives, coffee, and that happy family enjoying their Ramadan dinner ~ are all so charming.
R is for Rose Seller, and S is for Sweet Shop ~
I is for Ice Cream, and V is for Vegetable Shop ~
N is for Nuts & Spice Shop, and T is for Tea Time ~
J is for Juice Seller, and O is for Olive Field ~
A is for Arabic Coffee, and H is for Happy Ramadan ~
