Art of the pen in Arabic calligraphy

Art of the pen in Arabic calligraphy. [Newspaper] (2020)


Calligraphy is invariably the first thought that comes to most non-specialist minds when Islamic art is mentioned. Some old-timers might conjure an image of a carpet, but floor coverings have long since been superseded. The second universal thought about Islamic calligraphy is that we will be heading in a faith-based direction. This is the root of the art form’s pre-eminence, but there have been many digressions since the script was developed in the early years of the Islamic empire.
