Scholar of Islamic art and culture, calligrapher, engraver, ceramist, and official of a Sufi brotherhood in Italy, Khan discusses the earliest roots of the Arabic script, traces its development through secular and religious realms, and surveys its various manifestations now. He examines each of the 28 letters and six supplementary letters used in non-Arabic languages, noting its history and meaning; philosophical, theological, and cultural significance; and other aspects. The original Alfabeto arabo was published by Arnoldo Mondadori Editore, Milan in 2000; no information is provided about Frongia. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
