This 160 page book is a beginners guide to learning Arabic calligraphy.

The book begins its journey by reviewing the astounding roots and evolution of the Arabic script and how the scripts in use today emerged over time. Using a staggered approach, the book begins from the absolute basics - the inidivdual letters. The book does not end at instructions on scripting paired letters and full words, but actually leads students into creating full-blown masterpieces.
