Arabesque investigates the creative potential of the Arab World and Iran. This book features examples of groundbreaking graphic design, illustration and typography that is inspired by the richness of the region’s visual culture. Arabesque features works by young designers and activists from Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which is complemented by selected projects by Western designers, who are strongly influenced by Arab culture. Regardless of the location and ancestry of their creators, the examples included in Arabesque combine modern design with the traditional, letter-based canon of Arab forms in striking ways. Given the important role of calligraphy in the Middle East, Arabesque focuses on typography. The book presents a wide range of Arabic fonts and typefaces inspired by traditional calligraphy; these are accompanied by a selection of applications. Examples of design and graffiti serve as demonstrations of how text can be used illustratively. This work is particularly relevant to those now creating street art and poster design.
