The periodical Diwan Al-Ahram, published by Al-Ahram Organisation, has issued a special issue to mark its 10th anniversary.

Magazine chief editor Zeinab Abdel-Razak said the magazine has managed in a very short time to become one of the most prestigious Arabic language publications specialised in the history of culture and world and Egyptian heritage.

The new issue includes a special section about the Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez, republishing some of his most important interviews, including his interview with UNESCO's magazine after he won the Nobel Prize, and an article that the novelist wrote about Ernest Hemingway and his influence on his work.

The special issue also commemorates the iconic Egyptian movie star Faten Hamama (1931-2015) and her legendary career.

The magazine also focuses on the Surrealist movement in art in Egypt and how the trend was formed in the country.

Monotheism in ancient Egypt is addressed an article written by Egyptologist Zahi Hawass, who talks in detail about Akhenaten, a pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, who ruled for 17 years and who is noted for abandoning traditional Egyptian polytheism.

Another article marks 200 years of cotton planting in modern Egypt and the industries that were created around it.

Another article traces the 20th century after World War I, the new world that was created amid great political, cultural and artistic changes, and the rise and fall of world powers and the impact this had on the Arab world.

The issue also contains tens of rare photographs paired with the textual content.
