I am currently working on a trilingual typeface inspired by the circumstances of Polish Constitution of May 3.
I would like to make the arabic version which has some "revolutionary", "enlightment", "modern" flavour. I don't want to repeat any Bodoni or Didot forms - rather to find (as a base for further thinking) something originally grown in Osman empire, historically coincident (1790-1848).
Our native tradition is not the best starting point as it is a rural script.
Could you advice some search paths?
Thanks in advance.
