I’m pleased to announce that Elinor Aishah Holland and I are collaborating on a series of stock video clips featuring Arabic calligraphy. Our first collection—Arabic Calligraphy Letterforms—features Ms. Holland writing each of the eighteen basic shapes in the Arabic alphabet.

The video clips are available for purchase through www.istockphoto.com. We plan to create other clips and collections in the future, so leave a comment below if you have a specific Arabic word you’d like to see written in calligraphy (and captured on video.)
