The Arab (Font) Awakening

by James G. Beldock on April 20, 2012

A fas­ci­nat­ing long-form in­ter­view with Linotype’s Nadine Chahine about Arabic type­face de­sign. Naskh scripts are at on­ce both del­i­cate and bold, but I still find Thuluth the most beau­ti­ful. I won­der if an elec­tron­ic Thuluth script will be Nadine’s next project? “From the Inside, From the Heart”: Type Designer Nadine Chahine — Imprint-The Online Community for Graphic Designers.
