Burka

haha, here comes one of the posts that makes one think "how am I supposed to reply to this without offending anyone?" XD
I found a book today called "Burka" by Eva Schwingenheuer, the front cover looks like this:


Her book consist of 45 illustrations, some of these are here Collapse )
First of all, this is not a burqa, this is called niqab. Difference.
I don't know whether I should laugh or be offended. The illustrator reduced the women to the niqab. The part for their eyes is white, which suggests that there is emptyness under the niqab, no woman, no personality, no human life.
Maybe I should buy it and see the rest of it.
