Among many other treasures, the Oriental Department of the Wellcome Library houses a small, but important, collection of Islamic calligraphy. Unlike many modern catalogues on Islamic calligraphy, which primarily comprises of illustrations and their physical description, this volume includes full details of each item described. The diversity of topics, languages and styles of calligraphy represented in the Wellcome collection, together with the contributions by various scholars, will make this volume an important reference on Islamic calligraphy for many years to come.
