About this item
The history of a modern art movement in the Arab world called Hurufiyya. Reinventing calligraphy and focusing on the formal elements of the Arabic letter, it is one of the most significant art movements that took place in the Arab world beginning in the fourteenth century and peaked again in the mid-twentieth century. This movement fuses the traditional and the contemporary, the letter and the sign, in a way that the letter is perceived as an artistic form and does not require to be read or decrypted. Written by Dr. Charbel Dagher in 1990, this is the first time that these texts are published in English with new images and updated text.
