Mehmed “Sekerzade” (d. 1752)

Mehmed Sekerzade was born in Manisa, but the date of his birth is uncertain. He came to Istanbul and took lessons in Thuluth and Naskhi first from Abdullah Kirimi and later from Seyid Abdullah of Yedikule, from whom he received his icazet. An illuminated Quran written in the style of Sheikh Hamdullah was published by the Ministry of Education in 1312 H. (1888).

Thuluth Script

Thuluth Script was first formulated in the 7th century AD during the Umayyad caliphate, but it did not develop fully until the late 9th century AD. The name means ‘a third’ — perhaps because of the proportion of straight lines to curves, or perhaps because the script was a third the size of another popular contemporary script. Though rarely used for writing the Holy Qur’an, Thuluth has enjoyed enormous popularity as an ornamental script for calligraphic inscriptions, titles, headings and colophons. It is still the most important of all the ornamental scripts.
