Fou'ad Font

Sheikh Aziz EffendiThe Arabic typeface used by Tradigital deserves detailed mention also in this connection. This font was developed by Tradigital and is known in the Arabic speaking world as the Fou´ad font. This beautiful and very legible font has been achieved by copying the letters of the so-called Fou´ad Holy Qur´an, which was ordered to be made in 1932 by the Egyptian King Fou´ad and which is universally regarded as the highest achievement of Arabic typography. The calligrapher Sheikh Aziz Effendi ar-Rifa´i, who was entrusted with this production, was a famous master of his art. Even now his calligraphies are admired and regarded highly.

The Fou´ad font of Tradigital corresponds in detail with the calligraphy script of Sheikh Aziz Effendi and therefore makes it possible to produce new books with this beautiful font.
