About the Publisher
Dar Onboz is an independent publishing house founded in 2006 with the mission of making beautiful books that celebrate the Arabic language. The publishing house has since produced a series of illustrated books, animations, films and songs for babies, children and sometimes even for adults, all of which are pedagogical, driven by aesthetic design and frequently published in colloquial Arabic. Although a publisher, Dar Onboz is really a platform for storytelling, using many forms of contemporary art to retell folklore and fables while also highlighting public service issues.
