Abstract: 

Purpose: Interest in writing Quranic texts in an aesthetic way led to the formulation of rules for the laying out of text and the development of various calligraphic styles. Another feature for scribes writing the Holy Quran was the organizing and arrangement of lines on the page. The page layouts in Quranic manuscripts of the 14th-16th centuries in Shiraz included some innovations by scribes to improve layout. Introducing these innovations and analyzing them are one of the more difficult aspects of these Qurans. The features of these methods were studied in this paper.
Methodology/Approach: The research method in this paper was descriptive-analytic. The research data were collected through the library method. Originality: In the history of manuscript design, the innovations of scribes and manuscript writers for dividing pages and the ways of laying out the Quran and other books in different places and at different periods of Islamic civilization, for the holy Quran in particular, especially the Quran copies of 14th-16th century Shiraz, has received little attention.
