Recently there was held an Evening of Arabic Typography in Amsterdam, where Tom Milo and Tarek Atrissi aired their views. This link contains a video of the fascinating discussions.
For this occasion I drew the above cartoon reflecting the enthusiasm and creativity for Arabic typography in Holland. In the tradition of cartoons things are presented in a satirical and exaggerated way, and I hope it will help us laugh at ourselves even while we discuss the issues raised in a serious and friendly manner. Do join Typophile (where the cartoon was first published) and add to the discussions there. Huda and Edo please forgive me I never had the pleasure to see you so my depiction of you was just guesswork! :)
