Abstract

The authors provide a brief history of the art of calligraphy in Muslim cultures, highlighting examples of tessellations of words. The underlying principles for designing a word tessellation inscribed in a hexagon are discussed, and a test for determining which words can be tessellated is provided. The authors demonstrate their attempts at tessellating the word “Ali.”
