Colvert Arabic An homage to the Naskh forms
Available through Typographies.fr
Colvert Arabic is part of the multiscript Colvert type family with also includes Colvert Cyrillic, Greek and Latin, each designed by a native speaker of the concerned writing system.
Colvert Arabic is a modern Naskh typeface. It is a digital meditation into the Naskh letterforms. In its structure and proportions, it is very carefully authentic to the purity of Naskh calligraphic style, yet sculpted and modernized to reflect its contemporary context. It is pure enough to blend perfectly in long texts and small sizes, and minutely detailed to have an imposing character in headlines, logotypes and other display applications.
The respect and authenticity Colvert Arabic carries to the Arabic script in general and to the Naskh cal- ligraphic style specifically, implicated a large char- acter set that showcases the diversity and richness of the latter. The result is a 1065-glyph-character set with sets of ligatures, contextual alternates, 5 stylistic sets, and an extended character set to cover 7 non-Arabic languages using the Arabic script. In typographic terms, this allows a wide range of ap- plications from simple to sophisticated, modern to calligraphic, text to display.
