About

Calligraphie arabe French Edition Paperback – May 3, 2000 by Lassaâd Metoui (Author) Arabic calligraphy: In the furrow of the calamus Lassaâd Métoui Title: Arabic calligraphy: In the furrow of the calamus Publisher: Editions L'Harmattan Publication Date: 1998 Binding: Softcover Book condition: Good Calligraphy is one of the most significant forms of Islamic art. Here the artist plunges us into a dreamlike world where delicate architectures intertwine, the very sobriety of which surprisingly brings back to life the splendors of Baghdad, Cordoba or Fez. Lassaâd Métoui is a silversmith who sculpts and chisels his masterpieces according to rules established for centuries with a mastery of gesture and breath, a precision and a concentration that command admiration. The work features pages of calligraphy in black and white and in colors taken from quotes from Arab or ancient thinkers and philosophers. La calligraphie est une des formes les plus significatives de l'art de l'Islam. Ici l'artiste nous plonge dans un monde onirique où s'entremêlent des architectures délicates dont la sobriété même fait étonnamment revivre les splendeurs de Bagdad, de Cordoue ou de Fès. Lassaâd Métoui est un orfèvre qui sculpte et cisèle ses chefs d'oeuvre selon des règles établies depuis des siècles avec une maîtrise du geste et du souffle, une précision et une concentration qui forcent l'admiration. L'ouvrage présente des pages de calligraphie en noir et blanc et en couleurs extraite des citations de penseurs et philosophes arabes ou antiques. This is a beautiful coffee table or library book.
