“Writer’s Cramp” Islamic Calligraphy by Nashville Native Everitte Barbee
Nashville native, Everitte Barbee got an “A” in penmanship, but it wasn’t the Palmer Method. Now living in Beirut, Lebanon, he’s not afraid to take on large-scale projects…like writing the ENTIRE Quran in his beautiful style of calligraphy. Watch the video HERE.

If this calligraphy is of the sacred Quraanic verses,is it logical to give the shape of animals,Pure or Impure,?
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
English novelist (1812 – 1870)
I am fairly sure it has meaning….I only wish I knew what? If you click on the link to his site you can email him and ask for the specific meaning…thank you for your comment!!
Beautiful calligraphy and lovely designs – one question: do the calligraphic examples like the Statue of Liberty have verbal meaning, or is the pen work only decorative? At any rate, there is a wonderful variety and joy to the art.
