Letter cutting:

The objective meaning of the word and the anonymity of scribes. Ars longa, vita brevis. The harmony, balance and rhythmic spacing of letters falls between the eyes and re-erects the mind, even if the language is Persian. Disharmonious forms and discrepancies of spacing distract attention. The slight tremor of hand-cut letters has the appeal of a voice. At stake is the unity of meaning.
