About Bustan
Bustan is an Arabic display typeface inspired by Kairawani Kufic and cursive Sunbuli. Bustan has updated proportions and details, and is distinguished by its traditional serenity, modern aesthetics, and a rich set of letter variants. This typeface is the result of collaboration between the Syrian calligrapher Jamal Bustan, the designer of the typeface, and Dr. Mamoun Sakkal who carried its development and release. The programmer was Aida Sakkal. Bustan has nearly 4000 glyphs to provide proper letter forms for automatic contextual relationships on one hand, and on the other hand enables the user to choose from a wide variety of swash and flourish letters to suite their graphic needs.
