Summary
"Word into Art presents highlights of the contemporary art and culture emerging from the Middle East and North Africa today. The works illustrated, many published here for the first time, reflect issues of identity and politics, and the diverse artistic heritage of the region. Word into Art not only testifies to the strong calligraphic tradition of the Middle East, but also demonstrates the powerful and imaginative ways in which artists are using writing today."--BOOK JACKET
