Synopsis

Naskh is one of the six major cursive Arabic scripts. Its origins can be traced back to the late-8th century AD and it is still in use today. For centuries, novice Arabic calligraphers have learned the skill of this noble art by practising Naskh. This introductory workbook is designed to make it possible for everyone to learn Arabic calligraphy. Based on his experience of running workshops and demonstrations, Mustafa Ja'far has distilled the basics into a teach-yourself guide that progresses from the initial, medial and final forms of Arabic letters to joined letters to complete words. Guidelines are also provided on pens, ink, and writing angle for best results.
