The short video presents calligrapher Manzar Moghbeli demonstrating the nasta‘liq script. Notice the measured and deliberate pace of writing, the slow twisting and turning of the pen to modulate each stroke from right to left, and the arrangement of letters and words in relation to the baseline and to each other. Music: Kayhan Kalhor and Behrouz Jamali.
