Banipal is proud to announce the launch of a complete digital archive of its back issues, from Number 1, February 1998, to the current issue Banipal 57 –­ Syria in the Heart. As a digital subscriber you can now enjoy unlimited access to 19 years of translations, reviews, interviews and features for the duration of your subscription. 


Digital subscribers will now be able to access not only the long out-of-print issues from the early days, but discover the whole new world of prose and poetry by Arab authors that Banipal opened up through translations, revealing the rich tapestry of literature being written by hundreds of authors, stretching from Syria, Iraq and Palestine, through the Gulf from Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Saudia Arabia to Oman and Yemen, and round the southern Mediterranean to the north African countries of Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and southwards down to Sudan.


The archive is a fascinating and invaluable resource and is fully searchable by issue, by decade or by the entire archive.
