Calligraphers, artists, others—welcome to this blog, where I will share ideas and commentary about the world of Arabic script calligraphy. New posts will appear when the spirit moves me, but probably about once a month. Visit often and let me know what you think.—Mohamed Zakariya
My wife the editor says we should say something about possible inconsistencies in the material on this site, such as varying transliterations and inconsistent use of apostrophes and capitalization in script names, as well as use of italics on foreign words. We’ve tried to handle these issues but are bound to have missed a few. Please bear in mind that many of the essays and other materials were written at different times for different publishers with different house styles. Please bear in mind, too, that rather than adopt the monolithic Arabic transliteration template, I experiment with features from other traditions, such as Turkish and French.
