6 march 2009 – na’im samimi-moore can usually be found hunched in a dimly-lit room surrounded by depressing books, boxes filled with markers, and well-developed checklists. he is not to be considered a photographer, but simply a camera-owner.

    Hi there,
    I read that the first calendar got sold out…
    I was just wondering if any of the other calendars of the following years are still available to be sold….

      Hi, Samira! So sorry for the (ahem) year-long delay in response! We printed a limited-edition of our first book (photos and quotes, like an illustrated prayer book) a few years ago and so far haven’t designed another one since! it’s something we’d love to do, but it requires a lot of coordination. We will be letting people know about any future books on this site, though! Thank you so much for your comment.
