Calligraphy and Calligraphy Tools

Calligraphy is the art of decorative writing. A style of calligraphy is described as a hand. Calligraphy is an art dating back to the earliest day of history, and widely practiced throughout the world to this day.

Calligraphy ranges from functional inscriptions and hand lettering to fine art pieces where the expression of the handwritten mark may take precedence over the legibility of the letters.

Modern calligraphy continues to display itself in the form of wedding and event invitations and other works involving writing.

Modern calligraphy is simply good penmanship that attracts attention and has a style of its own.

East Asian calligraphy or Chinese calligraphy is an ancient art, widely practiced throughout China, Japan, Korea to this day. Although it uses Chinese words as its vehicle of expression, one does not have to know Chinese to appreciate its beauty. Japanese calligraphy is also very beautiful.

Tibet calligraphy is central in Tibetan culture. Their script bears a resemblance to chinese calligraphy. Tibet has been a center of Buddhism for several centuries and most all high religious writing involved calligraphy.

Islamic calligraphy or Arabic calligraphy is an expression of Islamic art that has evolved alongside the religion of Islam and the Arabic language.

Western calligraphy is the calligraphy of the Latin writing system. Christianity gave a boost to the development of writing through the prolific copying of the Bible, particularly the New Testament and other sacred texts.

Hand-written and hand-decorated books became less common after the invention of printing. Calligraphy continues to be applied today in graphic design, logo design, maps, menus, greeting cards, invitations, legal documents, diplomas, unfortunately forgery, poetry, bussiness cards, in hand made presentations, and numerous other places.

The principal tools for a calligrapher are the pen, which may be flat or round-nibbed and the brush. Ink for writing is usually water-based, unlike oil based inks used in printing. High quality paper, which has good consistency of porousness, will enable cleaner lines, although parchment or vellum is often used. Calligraphy font, calligraphy book, calligraphy paper, calligraphy set, calligraphy software, calligraphy supply and calligraphy alphabet can also be found on eBay.
