Arabic calligraphy is different to modern Arabic typography. These calligraphies are mostly ancient shapes developed in different eras, some in the Islamic medieval period and others during the 16th to early 17th century. Arabic calligraphy is considered one of the most beautiful forms of art. As a handwritten alphabet it can be shaped and styled with cursive lines. In our current time, these calligraphies are still widely used. They preserve the basic Arabic design qualities but are advanced in terms of their modern usage and application.
