This is so far in my opinion the best book in illustrating the tools required to be a calligrapher also used by Ottoman calligraphers. Countelss of colorful pictures showing the equipment & calligraphy.it explains in details how Ottoman calligraphers produced Hilye, Ferman, etc. Again the part that interest me is a details explanation in preparing the calligraphy for Quran mushaf. The book was printed in Bilingual - English & Turkish. I purchased this book in Istanbul in 2007 for USD90.
