Arabic Graffiti brings together artists [...] who merge Arabic calligraphy with the art of graffiti writing, street art and urban culture. In addition to a rich assortment of photos featuring Arabic graffiti and street art styles, it includes essays by distinguished authors and scene experts, in which they explore the traditional elements, modern approaches, and the socio-political and cultural backgrounds which have shaped Arabic graffiti movements in the Middle East.

Sounds really interesting and of course inspiring, for what reason I will definitively take a closer look at this book! In my eyes it’s worth for every graffiti enthusiasts or writer to expand the own view on other alphabets to get in touch with new forms and to be inspired by alternative styles…
