Brownbook Headquarters


Brownbook is the essential guide to the contemporary Middle East and North Africa. Launched over seven years ago, Brownbook is dedicated to exploring subjects across the entire region – from the music of Kuwaiti pearl divers to the Iranian diaspora of Los Angeles.

In print, Brownbook magazine’s six issues a year use beautiful photography and original artwork with in-depth stories and interviews on architecture, food, travel and other culture. Brownbook also publishes two annual Design and Fashion directories.
