An attractive illustrated Ottoman primer was designed by a brilliant Ottoman / Turkish illustrator and painter Münif Fehim (1899-1982), famous for his book and magazine illustrations.
The calligraphic script was made by Hattat Hamid, also known as Hamid Aytaç (1891-1982), one of the last classic calligraphers of the Islamic world.
Hattat Hamid briefly worked in Germany at a Map Department in Berlin, after which he founded his own commercial studio in Istanbul under the name Hattat Hamid Yazıevi, which presented classic Ottoman calligraphy in engraving and other printing techniques.
Hamid’s student was an Iraqi master calligrapher Hashem Muhammad al-Baghdadi (1917-1973), the last of the classical calligraphers of the Arab world.
