'Edge of Arabia: Contemporary Art from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia explores the extraordinary contemporary arts culture of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With contributions from art historians, curators, gallerists, collectors and patrons, the book centres around a group of groundbreaking and relatively unknown artists practicing at the center of the Islamic world.
The featured artists include: Shadi & Raja Alem, Hala Ali, Ayman Yossri Daydban, Manal Al Dowayan, Abdulnasser Gharem, Maha Malluh, Ahmed Mater, Faisal Samra, Jowhara Al Saud, Noha Al Sharif, and Sami Al Turki.
Besides showing the work of those 12 artists, the book also documents milestone Edge of Arabia exhibitions in London, Venice, Berlin, Istanbul, Dubai, and Jeddah, with the initiative’s very recent home-coming to Saudi Arabia in January 2012.' - from organizer's website.

This book also includes the colour plates of the artists' works along with essays, artist interviews, biographies of the contributors, and bibliography.
