Kufi-roman adaptation, 2nd trial

Posted in Uncategorized by Lina A.Hadi on September 21, 2011

 

 

poem adapted from¬†Shell Silverstein’s “Everything On It”, found on brainpickings.org

( I had to cheat and change it around somewhat to make the text fit)

 

The rules so far

– each word block should have straight edges to form an independent unit

РLetter connect either by baseline connections or by interlocking,  preferably not both

– glyphs expand in width to twice their original width

– one unit space

– parallel lines should have one unit width space

– connections should follow the natural strokes of letters

– medial connectors should align whenever possible across the word

Rhythm

Posted in Uncategorized by Lina A.Hadi on September 18, 2011

 

I was unable to find out exactly what this was, I can only assume that it’s Peter Bilak’s and that it has to do with roman vs arabic rhythm , abstracted, as it was displayed in a post about an event where Bilak was speaking, entitled “Unfamiliar Territories, Arabic Type and Modern Dance”.
