From the publisher's website: "This book is absolutely unique in the marketplace, given its 21st century design and interpretation of Arabic/Western themes created by Dave. Each page is jewel-like, a work of art in its own right and an absolute visual feast for the eyes. Dave Wood is recognised world wide for his works which are breathtaking in their execution and in the visual pleasure they exude. He combines his 45 years of experience as a graphic designer, typographer and world class calligrapher to expand calligraphy into a new and exciting dimension. Dave has been a pioneer in the promotion of calligraphy, originally holding the first ever solo exhibition of calligraphy in New Zealand in 1983. More recently in Australia Dave has continued to exhibit his work successfully in Galleries throughout Australia as well as overseas. Opening AustraliaĆ¢€™s first and only Calligraphy Gallery furthered his aim to have calligraphy recognised as an art form in its own right.DaveĆ¢€™s calligraphic artwork evokes a deep emotional response within the discerning art lover. His creative ability is portrayed by the continual development of new ideas and concepts using such mediums as paper sculptures and hand made papers to explore the wider dimensions of the written word Dave studied with Donald Jackson, Calligrapher to HM The Queen and has been a Fellow of the highly respected, London based Society of Scribes & Illuminators since 1991."
