The Rise of Islamic CalligraphyRegular price $60.00
The birth of Qur’anic calligraphy was a significant event in the early history of Islam. In a few decades, it raised the Arabs and their language from the remote fringes of the civilized world to its very heart.
Alain George brings together manuscripts, mosaics, architecture, and text to reveal the evolution of Arabic calligraphy from its pre-Islamic conception through the emergence of modern writing styles still in use today.
