ARABIC CALLIGRAPHY:
ANCIENT CRAFT, MODERN ART

For the Saudi Year of Arabic Calligraphy, Arab News created an in-depth guide to the ancient craft and its evolution over time. We commissioned illustrations by Michael Driver and these were animated by Wild Studio.

 

We carried out video interviews with well-known Arabic Calligraphers such as eL Seed.

 

This Deep Dive serves as the ultimate guide to the history, form and function of Arabic calligraphy.
