A book about inspiring design achievements from the Arab world. Lebanese architect-typographer Nasri Khattar, motivated by the postcolonial project of modernity, proposed a reduced set of 30 Unified Arabic letters. The proposal called Unified Arabic made reading Arabic easier to learn, and the production and typesetting of Arabic texts more efficient. This richly illustrated monograph presents his lifes work, placing it within the context of the Arabic alphabets history and typographic evolution.
