Naskh style typographically oriented font
Amiri font is a Naskh style, typographically oriented font, mainly for
printing and running text.
Amiri font is a revival of the beautiful typeface pioneered by Bulaq
Press, also known as Amiria Press, hence the name.
The uniqueness of this typeface comes from its superb balance
between the beauty of Naskh calligraphy on the one hand, and the
constraints and requirements of elegant typography on the other. Also,
it is one of the few metal typefaces that were used in typesetting the
Koran (as opposed to the usual handwritten calligraphy), making it a
good source for a typeface to be used in typesetting Koranic verses.
Amiri Font Project aims at the revival of the aesthetics and
traditions of Arabic typesetting (if partially), and adapting it to
the era of digital typesetting, in a publicly available form.
