Arab Aid: A Special Issue
For this issue of Aramco World, photographer Tor Eigeland and writer John Lawton teamed up for the third time on a special issue. Eigeland, who finished this issue just in time for a two-month assignment in Trinidad for the National Geographic book division, and Lawton, just in time to start as editor of a new international English-language daily in London, have worked together on three full issues since 1977 and six other articles individually.
Burnett Moody, Aramco's Chief Photographer, is also a long-time contributor. His contributions include the first published color coverage of Madain Saleh (September-October 1965) a voyage by tanker from Lebanon to Norway and the Arab world's pavillions at Expo '70 in Japan. Illustrator Neville Mardell, who did the charts, is also Art Director at Women's Weekly in London. —The Editors
