Habibi by Craig Thompson
Two books here, the biography of Georges Prosper Remi (briefly) starring Andy Warhol!
And Craig Thompson's (no relation to Thomson and Thompson) "Habibi" is a beautiful story about Dodola, an Arab girl, and Zam, a black slave whom she adopts as an infant; interlinking Arabic text to the art of storytelling.
"I have a sort of Christmas-morning sense of the library as a big box full of beautiful books." - Audrey Niffenegger
