Book art refers to the concept of making art literally out of a book or in other words, book as art. I came up with the concept of using book art to create Arabic calligraphy. The particular theme that I am using here is using the Asmāʾ Allāh al-Ḥusnā or the Beautiful Names. By Muhammad.

    I’m not comfortable with the idea of cutting up a book. Respect for books is too deeply ingrained in me.

    I like the photo of the wild grasses and flowers. The cup is nice too, but the presentation and shading are a little confusing.

    Everyone, keep creating. Ma-sha-Allah.
