Persian Handwriting by Mehdi Marashi
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Persian Handwriting (book and interactive CD set) is designed to introduce the Persian script to students whose native languages are written in the Latin alphabet. This systematic approach is presented in step-by-step instructions for copying the standard written style of the language. Models are provided to help students learn how to recognise and mimic the relative size and shape of letters and words. Legibility in Persian handwriting is the main instructional objective of "Persian Handwriting". Elements of legible writing are described and illustrated in various exercises and contexts. The text calls the students' attention to correct letter formation, consistency in the spacing of letters and words, good alignment, and other characteristics of the script conforming to generally accepted practices and rules for writing the language. The introductory chapters are intended to give the reader some background information on the history and development of the writing systems employed in recording the Persian language. The subsequent chapters provide explanations of the techniques and procedures of writing Persian, accompanied by various types of writing exercises.
