I just found this font on my pc by chance; I just loved it from the first sight. Adobe Arabic is a typeface designed by Tim Holloway. The most amazing thing about this font is the touch of Orientalism. The shapes and curves of Arabic letters is somehow a mix between Farsi and Naskh. On first sight, you might see it as a traditional Arabic typeface, but I believe that this font is a modernization of a classical font. This typeface works well for body text and headlines. Also it can be used for display graphical calligraphy. For screen usages, the font is amazing. Regarding magazines and books, this typeface would be a good choice. It works well with classic and modern English serif fonts. The family of this font includes regular, bold, italic and bold italic… which gives you a quite good choice for headlines and body text.
