Arabic Calligraphy Promo Book

About Arabic Calligraphy:

Arabic calligraphy was originally a tool for communication, but with time, it began to be used in architecture, decoration and coin design. Its evolution into these major roles was a reflection of the early Muslims’ need to avoid, as their beliefs required, figures and pictorials that were used as idols before Islam was established in the Arabian Peninsula.

Purpose of this Project:

This Promotion Book was done to showcase the history and evolution of Arabic Calligraphy. With this project I wanted to bring the old and the new but also showcase the delicate side of Arabic Calligraphy. I also wanted to  incorporate my culture and this Promo book was an opportunity for me to showcase that. This Project was Wiro bounded together and gold foiled and di cut by me.
