This is hardly a consistent or comprehensive survey. In my teaching I insisted that students were at least aware of non-western concepts of the Book, and the ways of reading it. In supervising the successful PhD of Nabeel Ali, I encountered also the disciplines and protocols of Islamic calligraphy. The meetings with our external supervisor Nabeel Safwat were enlightening and inspiring. I thank him here again for his experise and his grace of observation

Through him I encountered the collection of Korans owned by the Sheik Shakir, and, with Dr. Jackie Batey, was responsible for the website attached to that collection.
