Islamic Calligraphy

Created by the McGill University Library, Islamic Calligraphy is a digital exhibition showcasing the beauty and varying styles of Arabic scripts. Here, visitors can view a curated collection of over one hundred images showing representative examples of Arabic calligraphy from McGill's Islamic Rare Books Collection, including the sixteen pieces that were on display as a physical exhibition in 2011. The items in the digital exhibition are organized by albums, isolated leaves, or panels, and each image is footnoted by a brief description with a link to its full catalog record. This resource also contains a lengthy bibliography with citations for books and journal articles, as well as a list of links to other relevant web resources such as virtual museums. Islamic Calligraphy was curated by Anais Salamon and Sean Swanick, librarians in the Islamic Studies Library at McGill University.
