Thus, in architecture, the hypostyle many-columned mosque, which was the earliest type, persisted in the Maghrib, whereas elsewhere it was replaced by other types of mosques; in Arabic calligraphy, a distinctive Maghribi script and numbering system persisted until modern times, particularly in the production of manuscripts of the Koran, which were copied on parchment rather than paper far longer than elsewhere.

The arts of this region have largely been studied by Europeans, particularly the Spanish and French, along with some Italians and Germans. Americans have largely ignored the region until fairly recently. The history of art and architecture has not been a major field of study in postcolonial North Africa, where it is overshadowed by classical archaeology or subsumed into other fields such as manuscript studies.

Spanish material tends to be studied in minute detail, particularly by Spaniards, whereas it is sometimes difficult to find even the most basic information about North African material, particularly since arcjitecture are not normally permitted to enter mosques in North Africa.
