Ifriqi polychromatic fatface
0

This was lurking at the back of a catalogue of Islamic calligraphy that I picked up at Sam Fogg in London a few years ago. I hadn't noticed it until yesterday. The catalogue says it is probably Nigerian, from the early 20th Century: one page from a prayer book of 60 folios with four lines per page, all in this wonderful polychromatic style.

very interesting :), I like how "waw" is connected to the baseline, very good idea for a fat face.
