Dubai Wonder

Myrna Ayad has spent almost four decades in Dubai and, from editing Canvas magazine to directing Art Dubai, she's been completely immersed in the region's creative world. All of that knowledge has been poured into this striking coffee table book, which tours the reader around the most populous of the seven emirates. Taking in Zaha Hadid's work as well as the world's tallest tower, Burj Khalifa, this silk hardcover tome also dives deeper into Al Quoz's burgeoning art scene and reflects on Dubai's historic pearl diving industry.
