1970s Cairo Calligraphy

One of the many contradictory things happening around downtown Cairo; a while ago there was an exhibition for type fonts of downtown, inspired by old shop signs.. I have chosen one that temporalises it also as a font of the 1970s and 1980s to show here.

Its story is featured on bored panda and all details of the project and downloadable fonts are on khotoutwestelbalad.
