Description

An Israeli arrives at London's Heathrow airport. As he fills out a form, the customs officer asks him, 'Occupation?' The Israeli replies, 'No, thanks, just visiting! "I've realised why Israel is attacking us again,' he said with a big smile on his face, 'it's because Italy won the World Cup. It's just like in 1982.' Posted by Alfred Tarazi, "A Lost Summer" takes excerpts from emails, blogs, letters, jokes, anecdotes and quotes, collaging them into a heady mix of photographs, drawings and images. Designer Anna Ogden Smith has transformed these into a treasure trove - each page becomes a postcard expressing reactions to the war in Lebanon in July 2006. 'When I was 2 years old, until I was 5, the worst bombing took place. When my siblings were about the same age, the same acts took place. For a while I thought that war is like chicken pox: it happens to everyone at a certain age.' Posted by Wadiaa Khoury.
