How Arabic Character Transform into a Visual Object

The Arabic alphabet – Wikipedia ((Arabic: الأَبْجَدِيَّة العَرَبِيَّة‎ al-abjadīyah al-ʻarabīyah, or الحُرُوف العَرَبِيَّة al-ḥurūf al-ʻarabīyah)) or Arabic abjad is the Arabic script as it is codified for writing the Arabic language. It is written from right to left in a cursive style and includes 28 letters.
Originally, the alphabet was an abjad, with only consonants, but it is now considered an “impure abjad”. As with other abjads, such as the Hebrew alphabet, scribes later devised means of indicating vowel sounds by separate vowel points.

Some artist making Arabic Character for decsribe an idea about object things and allignment to form and voice. Architect and graphic designer Mahmoud Tammam has translated his love of form and sound of word into a delightful series celebrating language. Based in Alexandria, Egypt, the creative started the project as a “personal challenge.” He explains, “I using Arabic form of words and transform them into their meaning, and I made a total of 40 illustrated words.” In addition, the pronunciation of these Arabic illustrated words is included on every picture to help you sound them out.
Using the Arabic characters, Tammam fashions their sloping curves and dots into the bodies of animals, pieces of fruit, and distant landscapes. His pictorial manipulations are seamless and elegant, fusing words and images so well that it’s hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. This bridges the gap between language barriers—even if you can’t read the language, you can look at Tammam’s illustrations and instantly understand what you’re reading.
