My name is Kabir Babar, and I am an antiquarian and writer based in Lahore, Pakistan. The Didascalicon provides expanded, illustrated, and footnoted versions of my essays on film and literature, most of which have appeared previously in Pakistani newspapers. All screenshots have been taken by me, and all book scans have been scanned by me from books in my possession. In rare cases where I have obtained images from external sources, I have noted this in the image caption.

My personal Facebook page, where I comment on books I have acquired or book-related articles I have read, is at:
