Mali's Last Master Calligrapher Helps Preserve Ancient Manuscripts
"Boubacar Sadek is believed to be the last remaining master calligrapher in Mali. He fled Timbuktu with rare documents. He now makes a living in the capital Bamako, copying old manuscripts for posterity, as well as selling hand-made replicas to tourists." PRI's The World 02/18/13 (includes audio slide show)
