Did you ever have alphabet letter soup? Then you might like this creative food Idea!
I remember how much fun it was trying to make my own name floating on the soap or collecting letters at the edge of my plate. I created charming, funny or rather annoying messages for my parents… do you know what I’m talking about?
But did you know there’s no such thing as Arabic letter soup?*
On the 4th of October 2003, my sister-in-law came up with the idea during an Arabic lettering class. She is an Arabic linguist, and told me that there’s no such thing as Arabic letter soup**. For obvious reasons, she said, since you need to have dots in Arabic lettering because words get a totally different meaning without the dots.
So I came up with a solution that is as obvious as the problem. I inverted the letters and use negative space to create the characters in order to keep the dots attached to the rest of the character!
