Ya Mustafa!
Ya Mustafa!

Look: Arabic-Chinese calligraphy and more Arabic-Chinese calligraphy.

Arabic calligraphy is so much more interesting than Hebrew, or any other for that matter. To my taste, Japanese comes second and Chinese third.

There hardly is such a thing as Hebrew calligraphy - the script for hand-written Torah scrolls is the same all the time and all the other books are just printed and we are not really concerned with handwritten calligraphy, which is a pity.

I really like Japanese, and Sanskrit is gorgeous (we have it on a bottle at my lab for some reason...)
And then, maybe I'm biased, but I've always like Ye Olde English calligraphy.
