Thulth and Roosters.
Above: Omid Hamooni has generously sent along some images from the Shahriyar Mosque in Tehran, a public memorial and a place for shared worship for Shiite Muslims all over the world. Omid points out that the fascinating crafts featured here, calligraphy, carving, and intricate metal work, have a four-hundred year old history.
The Thulth style of calligraphy is heavily employed and Omid points out that the rooster can be interpreted as a call to prayer. Invaluable insight, mamnoon am, Omid!
Above: Some wonderfully calligraphic shadows here, Omid! Geotypografika welcomes any and all submissions of stories and images. Look up Omid at the amazing Khatt Network, and join in an open discussion for all designers, both great and small.
