  1. I was born in Dec 1972 in Cairo , Egypt , I have graduated from the faculty of specific Education , communication Branch , Ain Shams University since 1995. I began my discovery of calligraphy, when I heard about ACI ( Arabic Calligraphy Institute ) in Cairo, I decided to join it, I have studied all kind of Arabic Calligraphy art for 6 years. I have awarded a Diploma in Arabic Calligraphy and gilding since 2005, and I gained a Certificate to teach Arabic Calligraphy in Elementary schools. ACI made me really understand the letters,how they are built up and relate to each other I did my best to learn it . I have been fascinated with Arabic calligraphy styles , specially Thuluth style, because it is the most attractive and captivating Style in Arabic Calligraphy , it has a complexed and intertwined lettering , but has a charming view , at the same time. I have learned Styles of Arabic Calligraphy which include Naskh , Reqaa, Kufi,Dewani, Farisi and Thuluth, Each Style has its own characteristics. My love and infatuation with Arabic calligraphy led me to take more steps towards learning the logo design to serve the business sector who may need the Arabic calligraphy art interweaved with logo design. I have designed many Logos for Companies and corporations all over the world. I have a website on Arabic Calligraphy
  2. As a right hander, happy to accept whatever advantage it gives me in handwriting or the rest of life, there is something that I've idly wondered about for the past year or two. It came up again recently when I viewed an Israeli movie, Suicide, in Hebrew with subtitles. In scripts where one writes from right to left (Hebrew and Arabic occur to me), is it actually an advantage to be left handed? In the movie, a detective takes notes on a case on a legal pad, using a wood pencil. At one point he mentions, apparently casually, how much easier he finds the pencil to use than a pen. He is of course writing right to left, but he is using his right hand. I'm not thinking of the slow, deliberate writing of calligraphy, perhaps using a dip pen or even a brush, but the rapid, everyday, "good enough" writing involved in taking notes or writing a note to somebody. I have no intention of studying either Hebrew or Arabic at this point; I'm just curious.

    Gum Arabic Substitute

    I once read somewhere online that there was a time in the middle east when people would use honey instead of gum arabic when making their inks. Might anyone know if this is correct and if so what might be the honey to gum arabic conversion?
  4. This is a composition I did recently. The style is based on a modern script developed by a Calligrapher in Iran. The script is called 'Kereshmeh'. I could not find proper instructions for the script but I think I got the mood of it right with this attempt. The Arabic reads: Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim. This translates to 'In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful'. Here is a picture: It is hard to get a picture in the frame because of the reflections: This is one of the practice sheets where I am working out the shapes and ligature. There are several more of these :-) I have not been practising Arabic Calligraphy much lately so this was a good warm-up as well as a humbling reminder of how much work needs to go into it. One can't just wing it. - Salman __________________ Those who say it can't be done should get out of the way of those doing it.

    Hello From Israel

    Hello from Israel. I'm an American living and working with my family in Israel. I teach English and Bible at a local Arab Christian High School and am new to the FP world. Right now I'm using a Metropolitan Fine and Safari Fine every day in a Leuchtturm A5 squared notebook. My kids are I love writing with FPs and are exploring the best options for writing in Arabic and Hebrew. Looking forward to learning from experience here on FPN.

    Fude Vs Arabic/architect Point

    I was wondering, while scribbling with my custom Arabic nib, what would be the difference, regarding the line produced, between an Arabic/Architect point and a Fude nib... They look exactly the same to me on screen (somewhat the opposite of an italic), but since I don't own a Fude nib, I can't actually tell the difference in person, so I thought of asking here....so, is there any palpable difference between these two? Thanks!
