Arcane Word Magazine:
Cairo Raw: Graffiti from the Streets of Cairo
From the Publisher:
Magazines are one of my passions. I collect them , write for them, distribute them and create them. Arcane Word is a title I’m using to explore different topics around art media magic
Arcane Word Magazine takes its cue from the memory of 60s magazines like Avant Garde and Evergreen . A different perspective.
Arcane Word is open to collaboration and creating something similar in magazine or book (I’ll be posting PDF’s of books I’ve done-soon) form.

I will send a free copy of the Print Edition to the first five people to write me with an address I can send it to at: email@example.com
Background to this issue:
In November 2015 my son and I went to Cairo, Egypt for six days. We stayed downtown at the edge of Tahrir Square – the most graffiti-rich part of the city given it’s proximity to the various encampments and battles taking place downtown since the “Arab Spring.”
There’s a storehouse of words, images and drawings for me to mine. Future issues will feature more impressions, photos (including pyramid sites) and drawings from Cairo. It remains an incomparable experience.
. Additional topics TBD.
Thank you for reading.
