Al-Andalus is a multiscript font family that matchmakes both Latin and Arabic scripts in a harmonic dialogue. Al-Andalus is based on traditional Naskh calligraphic style and it is intended for Arabic literature text composition. The calligraphic flow makes the text very dynamic and elegant. It includes both extended Latin and extended Arabic (Farsi and Urdu). Al-Andalus combines perfectly well with Pradell Roman as its Latin companion.
