    Freebooter Script is my absolute favourite script font! It’s so elegant, and not in the typical overused script way. It’s how I come to terms with the obsession with script fonts in wedding invitations. :D

    While the “old school” part of me love the Old Script style, I find it amazingly hard to write. I love and have better luck writing with the Renaissance and English styles.

    Oh heck, I love them all!

    Thanks for sharing so many font types in one place!

    Is there any links for Arabic Calligraphy fonts ?
    I know many fonts, but I don’t know if they are free (as in freedom).

    There is an abundunt list about arabic calligraphy :
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_calligraphy

    is there some open fonts for that ?
    Sprecially for Diwani, Thuluth, Kufi, roqa’a, …

    Mohamed,
    I don’t know. I’ve never paid attention to Arabic fonts because I have no use for them, but they may exist. I would try a search on Google or Delicious.

    Linotype offers a wide range of Arabic fonts, maybe that helps:
