    Book cover for Kuyruk, the Turkish translation of the novel Al-Tabuur (English: The Queue) by Basma Abdel Aziz. The title was typographically rendered by Geray Gençer in tightly spaced lowercase letters from Gareth Hague’s Sabre Black.

    The Queue […] has drawn comparisons to Western classics like George Orwell’s 1984 and The Trial by Franz Kafka. It represents a new wave of dystopian and surrealist fiction from Middle Eastern writers who are grappling with the chaotic aftermath and stinging disappointments of the Arab Spring. — The New York Times
