A medium size bamboo pen and a patient hand will lead to true Thuluth shapes. Developed in the 10th century, its peak was in the 17th century: It peaked owing to the Ottomans, who highly admired it and used it extensively. It is easily recognized by its distinguished curves.

Another hallmark of the script is its rhythmic pattern of wide-shaped horizontals and slim and narrow-drawn verticals.

The writing tool should be a broad-nip pen or bamboo pen. My motivation to study Arabic calligraphy was solely a typographical one — in a sense a typographic exercise.

I exposed myself to a foreign script, language, and reading habit to train the eye, challenge my perception and examine the outcome. I focused mostly on the essential: I studied the historic and scholarly aspects of Khatt a little, but I learned the different writing styles and measurements of letters, and found myself quite capable of reproducing these.

The experience was unique: I was able to observe consciously the type of learning process a preschool child would go through. In order to learn the handwriting I had to copy letterforms whose meanings and sounds I understood only afterwards. The interesting fact about Arabic writing, as I experienced it, is that although the script is so flexible see Calligrams , it is many times precisely measured with equivalents of drawn dots in between the white space of the letter forms.

Too little white space between the letters will be considered illegible and therefore not a valid shape. The slowness of calligraphic writing is equally caused by the many moments of lifting the pen to draw a transition, outlining the shape first, and filling in the ink later especially in the case of Farsi — reminiscent of lettering design.

I have drawn in some small pine trees:. If you have never used any of the nibs above, sticking with a Nikko G or Blue Pumpkin is safest to start. Also keep in mind that you can flourish with faux calligraphy. As far as pens go, I prefer to use a right oblique pen. However, you can flourish with a straight pen! Believe it or not, a lot of right-handed calligraphers enjoy flourishing with a left-handed oblique pen; and a lot of left-handed calligraphers enjoy flourishing with a right-handed oblique pen.

Flourishes are wonderful in that they can convey playfulness, elegance, or both depending on how they are created.
