Onemanshow SS15: Kufic

The ancient writing’s on the wall, Kufic calligraphy that is.

Repeat pattern inspired by Orientalism and Kufic calligraphy, the oldest calligraphic form of the various Arabic scripts and developed around the end of the 7th century in Kufa, Iraq, from which it takes its name. Until about the 11th century it was the main script used to copy Qur’ans.

Within the pattern the Onemanshow name is repeated in multiple directions.
