In praise of AbdulAziz Wahabzadah (the ArabicTypography New Zealand project)

The @arabictypography has had a brilliant idea! To call on calygraphers or typographers to honor the 51 lives lost in the New Zealand terrorist attack. I applied with a special request - to honor the man who saved lives by running after the terrorist and throwing his own gun at him making him flee and saving hoards of lives in the process (read the story here). The man's name is AbdulAziz Wahabzadah. And he has my utmost respect.
