In the change from scriptural writing systems to textual mechanical systems and most recently to digital, computer generated text, some languages and their typographic representations have suffered.
One language, along with its visible representation, that did not go through a smooth transition is the Arabic Language. Since the Computer generated typefaces started to be widly used in the market, a vast number of Arabic typograpical styles were invented.
In this book, I will be criticizing the use of the vast amount of Arabic typography in our street urban culture, and specially the street sign-age system. The criticism will be based upon the fact that every type style in Arabic should always follow a structure of a spacing system, called the dotting system.
Every letter form follows a specific number on dots that identifies the length, height and stroke in the way it should be drawn.
