Brussels Sprout: Dubai Graphic Encyclopedia

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Brussels Sprout is a free curatorial magazine, and boy oh boy, do they love Dubai. Publishing from the capital of the Persian Gulf coast itself, their first three issues are an homage to the city they call “the first genuine work of art in the 21st century.” Their latest effort, Dubai Graphic Encyclopedia, Vol. 1, is a rarity in a world where physical reference books are sometimes among the casualties of our love for efficiency. With a breadth of content ranging from transport to cultural customs, this is one group’s attempt to decipher their city, without words.
