  1. 6th photo: any idea what the word at the end of the ‘hallway’ means?

  2. The word at the end of the hallway is “khatt”

    “The word khatt not only refers to writing, script, lettering, calligraphy, and typographic style. It also means line, as in a trace on a page… a line of thinking… a direction…”

    Our good friend Dina (expert on Arabic typography and professor at AUD) keyed me into the meaning. Thanks Dina!

  3. That’s a really beautiful definition — not just the writing, but also the ideas contained therein. Thanks!
