The invitation to the book signing, "Nasri Khattar, A Modernist Typotect; Fighting Illiteracy with Type Design" reads: Nasri Khattar is the inventor of Unified Arabic type.He is an architect and a type designer who has dedicated his whole life for the proliferation of Arabic script through the use of Unified Arabic letters that do not change shape according to their position in the word. A visionary work of 30 letter forms that fought their way through the corridors of diplomacy, international business and the minds of Arabs.
Had the invitation not been sustained with the following incredible image, one could have easily dismissed it as pompous. But just one look simply justifies every word above.
UPDATE: Due to logistic reasons the signing is postponed to a date which will be announced later.
