And this is a very unusual calligraphy- still the Koran- and rather beautiful I think you will agree?

If you do a Google for Maghrebi calligraphy you'll see more. It's perhaps 13th or 14th century.

How interesting!
But it is certainly copied here in Djenne I have been assured. It has just arrived at the library. If we find the name of the copyist and the date I will get back on this!
Thank you. Which Caroine is this? Have we met?
