    This is something I have never seen in the U.S. I have seen artists shop or more like a studio or such. But I have never seen calligraphy advertised in this manner. All calligraphy I have ever seen done is in the home of the artist or in their studio but not advertised in this way like a shop in a strip mall or such. Very interesting. I just love calligraphy so this caught my eye.

    • Hi Wildstorm – The Arab script is so artistic that it seems to always look like calligraphy. Much of the artwork here is simply verses from the Q’uran also done in calligraphic style. So I think calligraphy here is a much bigger business than it might be elsewhere.
