A Beginners Guide to Andalusi Calligraphy. A beginner's guide to Andalusian calligraphy.
Filmed in and around Orgiva and al-Andalus, and presenting interviews with Ian Whiteman and Emin Alzueta, this is the untold story of the only European calligraphic script used to write the Koran. Almost extinct, however, it was once part of the most extraordinary cultural flourish of the Middle Ages. Trace your journey from Medina to your pinnacle in Al-Andalus, Spain, where we see the rich context in which it evolved.
