A hand-bound and manufactured folding book printed in inkjet on archival paper, featuring eight letters drawn with different calligraphy brushes with watercolour pencil backgrounds.


Typical of Samir’s work on letters throughout his career and exhibitions, which he pushes to abstraction in a unique, minimalistic style, this leporello exemplifies Samir’s quest “to make calligraphy an art by itself, an art based on form, that doesn’t need to draw on the content of language”.
