IN FOCUS

Broken Integrity – Khat-e Mahi, Khat-e Paikan, and Khat-e Munfarid: Design Experiments in Non-cursive Fonts for Urdu, Persian and Arabic Scripts

PHOTO ESSAY

Scripts on the Wall

by Jamal Ashiqain

The walls of the city bear scripts, the words meaningless, meaningful, words erased, written over, erased and then written over again.

PROFILES

Mohammad Ali Talpur: Line, Language, Lacunas

REVIEWS
