The Arabic language has been at the core of civilisation since its very beginning. Even before Islam, Arab culture developed around the letter and the ‘star’ of early society was the poet more than any other artist. This book looks at the history of literature in Arab culture and the reasons why calligraphy was to become its most original form of visual arts.
