Arabic and Farsi Print Fonts
0

Hi Folks,

I have two questions,

1) Which Arabic and Persian (Farsi) fonts are being used mostly in printing?

2) What font faces newspapers use in main text and headings in Arabic and Persian (Farsi)?

Thanks,

Shoaib

Mamoun Sakkal in Seattle has quite a few professional Arabic types:

Nadine Chahine (so hot!) has added Kufi-ish matching Arabic to the Frutiger typeface, under the direction of Frutiger himself.
