The written word has always been at the apex of art in the Islamic world. This is no less true of the Malay world, where Muslim calligraphers have worked diligently for more than five hundred years. Although their efforts have rarely been discussed, this book provides an introduction to a field that is beginning to receive the acclaim it deserves. Covering everything from the Malay literary output to the types of watermarks found on regional manuscripts, it is fascinating insight into the aesthetics. The survey is as varied and intriguing as the many materials on which these manuscripts were written.
