Voweling lines, though no dots, indicate the pronunciation, but the letter shapes can alter significantly from Naskher. Developed in the 10th century, is still common: Its most important letter is the Alif, the letter dedicated to Allah. The letters are placed mostly beside each other, with accompanying broad letter spacing. A medium size bamboo pen and a patient hand will lead to true Thuluth shapes. Developed in the 10th century, its peak was in the 17th century: It peaked owing to the Ottomans, who highly admired it and used it extensively.

It is easily recognized by its distinguished curves. A beautiful curviness contributes to the extended flexibility. A slim reed or bamboo pen works well with this script.

Another hallmark of the script is its rhythmic pattern of wide-shaped horizontals and slim and narrow-drawn verticals. The writing tool should be a broad-nip pen or bamboo pen. My motivation to study Arabic calligraphy was solely a typographical one — in a sense a typographic exercise. I exposed myself to a foreign script, language, and reading habit to train the eye, challenge my perception and examine the outcome.

I focused mostly on the essential: I studied the historic and scholarly aspects of Khatt a little, but I learned the different writing styles and measurements of letters, and found myself quite capable of reproducing these. The experience was unique: I was able to observe consciously the type of learning process a preschool child would go through.

In order to learn the handwriting I had to copy letterforms whose meanings and sounds I understood only afterwards. The interesting fact about Arabic writing, as I experienced it, is that although the script is so flexible see Calligrams , it is many times precisely measured with equivalents of drawn dots in between the white space of the letter forms. Too little white space between the letters will be considered illegible and therefore not a valid shape.

The slowness of calligraphic writing is equally caused by the many moments of lifting the pen to draw a transition, outlining the shape first, and filling in the ink later especially in the case of Farsi — reminiscent of lettering design.

Calligraphic writing is not just a contemplative art or simply an historical and psychological exercise. It requires not just an accuracy of measurements and the knowledge of alphabets. Calligraphic writing leads to the understanding of shapes and forms.

Following the fact that one sees only what one knows, the calligraphic practice certainly causes one to look closely. My typographic exercise made me look from the Arabic calligraphic practice to the European interrelationship of calligraphy and type.

The outcome has left me with an interest in other calligraphy traditions and their influences on inter-linguistic type. In the Islamic culture the respect for calligraphers is, by far, greater than its awareness of type designers. Similarly so in the Chinese culture. Likewise a related phenomenon occurred in Europe in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, when the transition from calligraphic handwriting to punchcutting and letterpress printing occurred.
