In this study, the researcher uses the descriptive analytical method, and it is importat in that it deals with the innovative rules used by the transcribers in their design formulations, which is not separated from the cultural heritage and Islamic art. It also highlights the formulations value of the body and space in the design process, and its role in directing the page layout and methods of lineing in Islamic manuscripts. This study can benefit artists, designers and critics in the arts and design schools and faculties, as well as specialists in the study of arts and Islamic studies.
