Arabic Calligraphy

Over the next few days, I will feature different styles of Arabic calligraphy.  Arabic script is so beautiful - like an art unto itself.  I hope you will enjoy the various fonts I will post in the coming days.  Arabic is written right to left, the opposite of English.
In this photo, you can clearly see two different calligraphy styles, one in orange on the sign above the business, and the other at the top of the building. The orange script is very graceful and curvy, while the font at the top is more regimented and angular.
