These are some gorgeous arabic printers plates. These would have been used to advertise the borders and colours that that particular printer had. They are absolutely stunning! I have some more tucked away somewhere that I'll blog at some point. I'm beginning to get really into typography that's in other alphabets and letterforms that I can't understand. It makes you appreciate the letterform so much more if you can't attach a meaning to it I think. I'm toying with the idea of doing an intensive calligraphy course when I graduate so I'll post some examples of that soon.
Apologies for my lapse in the 'daily' element of this blog. I literally haven't had time. Even after my assessment I will be busy with new projects and my dissertation. It's all non stop!
