amiri – A clas­si­cal Ara­bic type­face, Naskh style

Amiri is a clas­si­cal Ara­bic type­face in Naskh style for type­set­ting books and other run­ning text.

It is a re­vival of the beau­ti­ful type­face pi­o­neered in the early 20th cen­tury by Bu­laq Press in Cairo, also known as Amiria Press, af­ter which the font is named.

The project aims at the re­vival of the aes­thet­ics and tra­di­tions of Ara­bic type­set­ting, and adapt­ing it to the era of dig­i­tal type­set­ting, in a pub­licly avail­able form.
