Arabisch-Türkisch

I'm working on a catalogue right now with some Arabic characters and I realize how little I know about non-roman type

I found these pretty Turkish specimens from Budapest, 1922, D. Stempel Foundy.

The Stempel foundry (sort of) merged into Linotype in 1985. I love Stempel faces, they are cool and clean. They are responsible for Memphis and also have a really nice, crisp font of Garamond.
