    Awesome! Arabic lettering needs to get more recognition, actually everything next to the Latin alphabet is not yet being utilized to it’s full potential.

  • Monsoonking

    Anyone aware if prints are available? Judging from the Christies auction results, originals are slightly out of my grasp.

    • haha im gonna guess that there are no prints but if i find there are ill post back here
