“Ketabe Jom’e” (meaning “Book of Friday”) was a weekly journal of politics, literature and art that was published between July 26, 1979, and May 30, 1980. The prominent Iranian poet, Ahmad Shamloo, was the editor-in-chief of the journal.
Here are a few examples from the newly launched permanent online exhibition, “Graphics of Revolution and War: Iranian Poster Arts.” The digital exhibit showcases posters from the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the Iran-Iraq War (1980-88). Along with the introductory essay, thematic sections, and poster descriptions, the website also provides additional commentary (including information about the provenance of the poster collection at the University of Chicago) as well as poster artists’ information and further bibliographic resources.
