About the Author
Master calligrapher Seyed Mohammad Vahid Mousavi Jazayeri is an established Iranian calligrapher, researcher, graphic designer and expert in early Arabic Kufic script. Mousavi Jazayeri was awarded a Certificate in Excellence for his groundbreaking achievements, particularly his rediscovery of the lost art of cutting the qalam (pen) for early Kufic, more than twenty years ago. Born in 1969, Vahid holds a Bachelor of Art in Graphics. He has published extensively and held numerous workshops on reviving the early Quranic Kufic calligraphic style. Vahid started his career studying the Thulth and Naskh scripts in 1982 and after nearly ten years of training he began teaching in Tehran art schools from 1991. Within a year, he was producing significant work in two additional fields: historical calligraphy research in a range of media (ceramics, coins, plaster and stone, as well as manuscripts) and contemporary type design. The research and achievements of Mousavi Jazayeri brought together the first international group dedicated to the study and revival of the historic Kufic script: Kuficpedia.
