On March 5, 2007, a car bomb exploded on Al-Mutanabbi Street in Baghdad, killing 30 people and wounding more than 100. Along with the human victims, thousands of books were destroyed. The center of the city’s literary and intellectual community, the street’s bookstores and outdoor bookstalls took a tremendous hit. Thousands of miles away, San Francisco poet and bookseller Beau Beausoleil decided to take action, founding the Al-Mutanabbi Street Project. To date, the ever-evolving art and literary project features the anthology Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here, and handmade books and letterpress broadsides by more than 400 international artists.
