Without regional borders or constraints, ‘Arabic Graffiti’ references the use of Arabic script in urban context. It showcases artists, graffiti writers and typographers from the Middle East and around the world who merge Arabic script and calligraphy styles with the art of graffiti writing, street art and urban culture. The project offers many different, diverging and at times contradicting ideas and approaches to treating this sensitive tradition with contemporary vision. To accompany a visual assortment of styles, the book will include several crossover topics, such as classical and contemporary calligraphy, Arabic typography, political graffiti and street art. Curated and authored by Lebanese typographer Pascal Zoghbi and Don M. Zaza aka Stone (Cubabrasil, From Here to Fame Publishing), ‘Arabic Graffiti’ also features essays by various writers and artists working in this field.

Ad accompagnare questo assortimento visuale di stili, il libro include diversi argomenti incrociati come calligrafia classica e contemporanea, tipografia araba, graffiti politici e street art. Curato e firmato dal tipografo libanese Pascal Zoghbi e da Don M.
