Nastaliq Calligraphy -

Our documentation team just launched a documentary video covering the rich tradition of Nastaliq Calligraphy in Afghanistan.

Nastaliq calligraphy is a form of art found in every corner of Afghanistan, next to artwork and wall paintings, Nastaliq can be found in most of the shops' fronts. This gives a touch of simplicity, tradition and authenticity to the humble streets of Afghanistan.
-- Find the video on our Youtube channel here:
