‘’abeyance’ is most interesting for its impressive use of design elements to evoke philosophical content. [...] One does not read ’abeyance’ so much as feel the texture of its paper, see the pattern in its designs and hear the sound of its pages turning."
- The Daily Star -
"A meditative approach to an almost folkloric, basic element. [...] ’abeyance’ is a project full of wit, maturity and a pertinent reflection on life."
- ArabAd magazine -
Mankind is highly affected by time and speed, and it tends to get lost in the process - a step towards new technologies, a step closer to the future, sounds better than the present and our world becomes a more hectic environment. We forget that whether we’re going fast or slow, eventually we’re all reaching the same result - our inevitable death. So why not enjoy that moment you’re living in? Because it’s only when you go slow that you really enjoy and remember the pleasure. So sip your coffee, feel the hug and notice the smile.
This is a book on the art of slowing down. a fusion of design, poetry and statements. An invitation to notice the details. Indulgence of simple pleasures. Thought provoking. A meditation.
