Sa7ten! Arabic/English lettering exploration multilingual lettering type calligraphy lebanese lebanon language english arabic

This is a project I'm starting in which I'll write out some of my favorite words/phrases I learned during my time spent living in Lebanon. Sahten/Sa7ten (The arabic equivalent of 'cheers' or 'to your health') is spoken any time someone is about to eat, and is heard often in the restaurants of Beirut. Here it is written in Arabic from right to left, intertwined with the English transliteration from left to right.
