In this collection of artworks AlDowayan examines the imagery and titles used on the covers of books written by men for women: books that claim to help guide women as they exit their private spaces and enter a public sphere that, according to the authors, belongs to men. The porcelain papers are reproductions of the content of the mentioned religious books, printed on porcelain to give them a permanent but delicate existence. Titled Just Paper these works show the fragility of the words they hold.
