[BKARTS] Copying the Koran



Dear Friends

Friday's New York Times had an art review by Holland Cotter about two companion exhibits on calligraphy in the Koran at the Asia Society in New York. He writes:

The art of the book and the art of writing are the subjects of paired exhibitions at Asia Society, “Traces of the Calligrapher: Islamic Calligraphy in Practice, Circa 1600-1900” and “Writing the Word of God: Calligraphy and the Qur’an.” Perfect in size and proportion, carefully thought out and gorgeous, they are worthy of the book they honor.
