We're so excited about the German edition, called 'Ob nah, ob fern, ich hab dich gern' and published by ars Edition. It's out now... and it's lovely!
We all feel like we’ve missed out on our fair share of hugs and physical affection this year because of the coronavirus. “I’ll Love You from Afar” is an ode to all the wonderful and imaginative ways we can still love each other while we’re apart–like using singing whales and writing notes in the stars! With whimsical illustrations and rhyming text, this book is a sweet reminder for people of all ages that we can love each other no matter how near or far.

Founded by Racha Mourtada in 2018, Luqoom is a boutique publisher of pretty picture books in Arabic and English, based in Beirut. We believe books are treats to be savoured. They should be held, pored over, snuggled with and shared.
At Luqoom, we know that the combination of spare prose and beautiful imagery can create something magical. We strive to make luscious books that are captivating and visually rich, inviting kids (and the young at heart) into a world where they can let their curiosity and imagination run free.
We pride ourselves on using sustainably sourced materials and local talent.
We are particularly partial to science, silliness and good storytelling.
