  2. Finished book cover in modern Kufic script. The central dot here and golden lines are meant to be hot-stamp foiled.
    For non-Arabic speakers: the central motif is made up of the title, while the author's name, repeated, forms the ornamental frame. The book is The Prophet (النبي) by Khalil Gibran.
