This great little book—and I do mean little—will fit into the back pocket of your jeans. Very nicely organized and lots of information on the two facing pages devoted to each letter, including each letter’s name, pronunciation, and different shapes. Clear instructions for beginners to start writing. Shows each letter in different calligraphic scripts. Highly recommended for beginners and even those who already know their alif-ba-ta but want to review or maybe pick up some tips.
