Towla is based on the instructions for the board game backgammon. A game I played daily with my father during my childhood. The instructions are written as a cultural transaction between my father (a migrant from Lebanon) and myself. It contains written instructions in the English and Arabic language. Starting from the left-hand side of the book (printed in grey), are Latin letters spelling out instructions in the Arabic language. Opening the book from the right-hand side (printed in golden yellow), are Arabic letters spelling out the instructions in the English language.
