Calligraphy is a type of visual art. It is often called the art of fancy lettering. A contemporary definition of calligraphic practice is “the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious and skillful manner. The story of writing is one of aesthetic evolution framed within the technical skills, transmission speed and material limitations of a person, time and place.

Calligraphy is commonly created with a pen and/or a brush dipped in black ink. The appearance of ink brushed on parchment is universally aesthetically pleasing. It has a basic, natural feel, and is soothing to look at. The combination of rough and smooth edges where brush strokes start and end create a naturalistic look and accentuate the simplicity of the piece. In addition, the angled brush strokes can make the lettering come alive, lending a feeling of flow and motion to static images. Looking at calligraphy, one can almost see the brush touching the paper in their mind

The word “calligraphy” comes from the Greek words “kallos” (beautiful) and “graphe” (to write). Before the invention of the printing press, books were hand lettered by skilled scribes who used quills and ink to write out the text on vellum or parchment paper. Today, calligraphy continues to fascinate people of all ages. Even though modern technology has made computer fonts readily available in any style you can imagine, hand lettered text has a charm all its own.

In this post we will feature more than 40 excellent and gorgeous examples of calligraphy. This showcase includes pieces that have been created by hand as well as some that have been created digitally to replicate the look of calligraphy. Enjoy!
