Lettrism is a French avant-garde movement, established in 1946 by the publication of the Lettrist Manifesto by Isidore Isou in Paris.[1]

Lettrism is also the Hurufi movement (Arabic: حروفية‎ meaning "letters") which was lead by Fażlu l-Lāh Astar-Ābādī, also called Nāimī (1340–1394) and which spread in areas of western Persia, Anatolia and Azerbaijan.[2]
