In Pictures: Baghdad book market
Poster man

Books and tea are not the only things available at the market. This man is selling posters of Shia Muslim figures.

Before the fall of Saddam his stock consisted of natural scenes such as gardens and waterfalls.

Now he is doing a roaring trade in pictures of Ruhollah Khomeini, Muhammad Baqir al-Hakim and Muhammad Sadiq Sadr.
