Nafahat
The Art of medieval illumination
8/30/2006

 This is our most recent project,  where we look into the Medie val Egyptian Qur’ans and Bibles for fresh
inspiration .
Our search was for colored cartouches and fields for Arabic Calligraphy either for Divine or secular 
sayings.
What we discovered in our search was a confirmation of many scholars’ belief that the Medieval Egyptian craftsman knew all the intricacies of his trade and how to adapt his metier to the demands of the patrons wether they were Moslems, Christians or Jews.

kalthoum.
