Description from the publisher:

In a broad sense, calligraphy is merely handwriting, a means of recording and transmitting information, sometimes clearly, sometime not, but in most instances hastily and with little regard for its appearance. In the Arab world, calligraphy is something more. It is an art – indeed the chief form of visual art – with a history, a gallery of great masters and hallowed traditions. It is an art of grace and elegance which inspires wonderment for its appearance alone. What distinguishes calligraphy from ordinary handwriting is, quite simply, beauty. Handwriting may express ideas, even great ideas, but to the Arab it must express, too, the richer dimension of aesthetics. Calligraphy to the Arab is, as the Alexandrian philosopher Euclid expressed it, “a spiritual technique,” flowing quite naturally from the influence of Islam. This book is produced on 20" x 16" colored canvas finished paper ready for framing. It acts as a great coffee table decoration or a wonderful heartfelt gift.
