Basma Hamdy’s book 'Khatt. Egypt’s Calligraphic Landscape' was published by Saqi Books. Photography by Noha Zayed.
Khatt is an extensive visual documentation of the found typography and calligraphy in Egypt, a calligraphy hub that possesses a rich tradition of education and production in the field. This timely volume records the traditional craftsmanship of hand-painted calligraphy, which is fast disappearing because of the digitization of the Arabic script.
