Die Library of Congress hat "Selections of Arabic, Persian, and Ottoman Calligraphy" digitalisiert: "During the late 1920s, early 1930s, and 1990s the Library of Congress acquired a large collection of Arabic script calligraphy sheets. This presentation exhibits 355 Arabic calligraphy sheets, ranging from the 9th to the 19th centuries. A majority of the calligraphy sheets were written on paper, however, a group of Qur'anic fragments from the 9th and 10th centuries were executed on parchment". Das Online-Angebot kann durchsucht oder nach KalligraphIn, Titel oder Subjects durchbrowst werden. Ergänzt werden die Datensätze durch Nützliches wie "Understanding the Collection", "Working with the Collection", "How to View" etc. - Quelle: librarian wannabes.
