Fahres Al Khattat
Publication with cotton cover
Fahres Al-Khattat is a nonprofit publication and a humble effort that aims to empower calligraphers in Jordan. The publication features a variety of calligraphy works, attributed to their respective calligraphers, paired with contact details, specialisations and services offered. It positions itself as a portfolio and a living documentation rather than the traditional directory listings, encouraging commissioning opportunities in the midst of the demise of this traditional craft. The purpose of the shiny vending machine is to avoid the concept of a charitable donation to a cause, and rather have an interactive commercial transaction for the users with instant rewards. The collected money is set out to contribute to the extension of the project, including; an independent exhibition for the calligraphers, turning the project into an online portal which would allow for the expansion of the database.
