The third and fourth volume of "The Art Library", pioneering series of slipcases initiated by the Misk Art Institute to provide a comprehensive panorama of Saudi and Arab visual artists. 

These exquisitely designed volumes offer an informal yet richly detailed introduction to the most prominent figures of Arab art. The slipcased set contains two books, each dedicated to a Saudi and a non-Saudi artist.
Rafa Nasiri is a contemporary Iraqi painter, printmaker, educator and author whose work combines an abstract reflection on Arabic calligraphy, poetry and Chinese art. His use of color and line resonates with the aesthetics of the Hurufiyya movement and abstract expressionism.
Lulwah Al Homoud is a Saudi Arabian contemporary artist. Drawing on traditional Islamic and Western art, her work explores calligraphy and mathematical processes. Her work is distinguished by her use of complex Arabic letters to construct abstract yet technical works on paper.
Lulwah Al Homoud and Rafa Nasiri illustrate the vitality and continuous renewal of the art of script and calligraphy in the Arab world. The two artists are from different generations, and their works represent two different genres that are both influenced, inspired and rooted in Arab artistic culture.
