“One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.”

Those are the wise words of noted astronomer Carl Sagan. They also reflect an idea shared by Sheikh Nasser Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah and Sheikha Hussa Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah, co-owners of The al-Sabah Collection (TSC). Motivated by them, we are pleased to provided many different opportunities to ‘hear the voice of another person’ and, in our case, the stories told by objects in The al-Sabah Collection.
