This book provides a study on calligraphic letterforms in general and Persian Nastaliq calligraphic letterforms in particular by applying the various insights of multimodal social semiotics and the two systems of graphology and graphetics. The main purpose of the research is to investigate the extent of functionality of calligraphic letterforms and their independence from language to make individual distinct meanings beyond linguistic practices and conventional meanings embedded in language.
