Aanab No.4: The Arak Issue - AKA the Last Print Issue of Aanab
I will no longer be taking Aanab print orders as of this Friday!
The last print issue of Aanab (for the foreseeable future) will be shipped out next week. I’ve begun prepping the envelopes of those who have already ordered a copy (thank you) and those who are promised one because of their 2022 Patreon memberships (thank you with sprinkles). I’ve ordered a VERY limited quantity as I will not be hauling a thick stack back to Beirut with me. I’m saving that suitcase space for books!
The print copy of the 8-page Aanab No.4 mini-newspaper can be mailed anywhere in the world*. If you’re worried about paying through the nose for shipping abroad, there is a fixed rate international shipping option for one copy at $1.50 but it will be slow and without tracking. For that fixed rate, it can take anywhere from 10 days (UK/Europe) to 2 months (Lebanon** & friends with similar postal systems).
This special issue is THE ARAK ISSUE. It features a brief history of arak from Marwan El Asmar, a long-form essay by yours truly where I spoke to a couple of average Joes (Joe Merheb and Joe-Assaad Touma) about Lebanon's supposed native grapes, commissioned work from Tamara Saade as Our Eyes on the Ground, and some words on arak cocktails by Bethany Kehdy...and more!
*Except for the UAE or KSA.
**If you would like me to hang onto your purchased copy for pickup in Beirut, please add that to your order notes.
If you want a hard copy, this is your last chance as there are very few copies left and I will no longer be processing orders for print copies after Friday. To secure a copy for you or a friend, place an order before March 31st.
FYI: There is a handful of print copies of No.2 and No.3 left too!
