Arabic Type is My Type


Arabic Type is My Type

This article discusses the evolution of Arabic calligraphy and highlights the current state of Arabic typography.

It talks about the importance of Arabic language to Muslims, as it is the language of Quran; the holy book sent by God. The appreciation of Muslims of their religion is reflected in the development of Arabic calligraphy; Kufic as well as cursive scripts are highlighted in order to manifest the progression of Arabic calligraphy during the rise of Islam. The light is shed on Latin typography in order to compare its progression with Arabic typography. Lastly, the demand for contemporary typefaces that serve the current demands is also discussed at the end this article. Calligraphy is among the oldest and most precious arts in Islam. It grew and flourished through different eras during the Islamic civilization. The Arabic writing was in a moderate state before Islam and evolved into astonishing maturity after the rise of Islam. At the time of Quranic revelation, Arabs had a set of well-shaped yet primitive representation of their alphabets. During the rise of Islam, Muslims considered calligraphy as the art of a linear graphic, it restructures ones perception of language. It beautifies the word, and obeys to the geometry of the spirit it is created in. According to Muslims, Arabic calligraphy, combines the bodily and the spiritual through the knowledge of its proportion (Khatibi,A, Sijelmassi, 2001). As the Muslim Arabic scholar, Hassan Bin Al- Haitham (965-1039) states " calligraphy is not beautiful unless its letters are proportionately arranged in their forms, dimensions, positions and order"(George, A. P.109).
