Hi there Typophiles,
It has been a little more than a year now since I started a blog on Arabic Typography in Arabic. Ever since, I have been trying to find ways to make the blog accessible to non-Arabic readers. While my main objective is to increase awareness and build capacities in the area of Arabic Typography among the interested Arab youth, I still think it is important to make the content of the blog available for a wider extra-Arab readership.
In ArabicType.Wordpress.com I focus on contemporary Arabic script issues and I try to provide useful and inspirational content in a lighthearted flavour. It is a demanding task that hardly leaves any time for an English mirror of the blog. I did try to start a parallel blog and post summaries of the Arabic blog, but I could not systematically update it as I plowed along with the Arabic version. Now that I have discovered this Typophile feature, I will test its linkage with my established ArabicType.Wordpress.com blog.
For those who could read Arabic please visit my blog at
and for those who do not speak Arabic, kindly wait for the summaries on this blog.
