Geschriebene Welten - A Written Cosmos - English/German version
Geschriebene Welten - A Written Cosmos: Arabic Calligraphy and Literature Throughout the Centuries Arab language has been the core of Arab civilisation since its very beginning.

That is the reason why calligraphy was to become the most original form of Arab visual art.
