Mashrabiya Fonts

square 1In March I received an email from Edo Smitshuijzen who proposed to include some of my typefaces in his publication on Mashrabiya Fonts. I was delighted to receive a copy of the beautifully produced book in the post today, generously highlighting eight of my fonts and even 3D vase renderings of a papercut.

Mashrabiyas are an iconic element of Arabic architecture. Providing shade, air circulation and privacy, all at the same time. This book showcases a number of font designs that can be used to produce Mashrabiya screens, including some possible applications. It aims to fill in a peculiar gap and thus enrich the Arabic visual culture with this new category of fonts.

The 216-page full colour paperback can be ordered through Khatt Books, publishers on design and visual culture of the Middle East and North Africa.
