Or Farsi, really, since the Arabs got their alphabet from the Persians, but whatever. I’m working on a leather photo album as a gift for a Persian family and I wanted something that would hark back to their origins. I saw this lettering and loved how it mimicked Arabic calligraphy and decided to try it out myself.
I really love how it turned out, and I decided to have it laser-engraved into the leather. I’m debating about whether to then paint the letters with gold leather paint. It’s an expensive mistake if I end up not liking it in gold. We’ll see, and I’ll post pictures when I’m done.
