Arabesque- Graphic Design from the Arab region and Persia

My work has been published recently in Arabesque - a book that features graphic design work from the Arab region and Iran. Work that deals mainly with Arabic Typography and Arabic Calligraphy.

The book features great work. I was really fascinated with the amount of talented Arabic and Iranian designers who has been doing a lot of great and inspiring work with Arabic typography and calligraphy. I personally think every designer and student should buy this book, it will help develop our type skills and allow us to think how to integrate Arabic type in a more interesting way in our personal or commercial work.

Editors: Ben Wittner, Sascha Thoma, Nicolas Bourquin
the book has been done by EPS 51 who also designed Talib Font, which I have featured before in the blog.

Please check out the book, and if you get the chance to buy it, trust me you will not regret it, its very inspiring. At last we are are proofing that there is so many interesting things you could do with Arabic type and calligraphy.
