A new book, Herzl’s Vision Today, celebrates the 120th anniversary of Theodor Herzl’s utopian novel Altneuland – Old New Land. It is a contemporary, inspiring and unique collection of art and essays that pay tribute to Herzl’s prophetic impact upon 21st century Israel. The subjects are varied and explore Herzl as a futurist, the architecture of Tel Aviv, wine, innovation, cinema, Israeli-Palestinian relations and an “Interview with Herzl”. The book is the brainchild of Carol Manheim, publisher of Artists Choice Editions, founded in London and now based in Tel Aviv. Manheim, who moved to Israel in 2017, told KAN reporter Naomi Segal how the project began with research into her own personal history.
