- Ayyam-i-Ha is a Baha’i festival that is joyously celebrated in countries and territories all over the world. It is a time of hospitality, generosity, and caring for the needy. This year Ayyam-i-Ha runs from February 26-29.
Book covers are a much loved graphic design medium. In fact designers regularly share galleries of gorgeous cover designs at sites like the Book Cover Archive and Beautiful Book Covers. We set out to find a collection of Baha’i books whose use of type, space, image and colour caught our eyes. As the saying goes, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but when they look this good – just go ahead and do it!
