The world of calligraphy


Calligraphy is the art of more than beautiful handwriting technique forming by hands and arranging them well. It is not just about putting text or using letters on paper, it’s about dressed up letters with some form of decoration.

The three fundamental calligraphy tools are: 

1. page: the writing surface

2. ink: any liquid color for application

3. nib: (or brush) on a handle

Calligraphy continues to flourish in the forms of wedding and event invitations, font design and typography, original hand-lettered logo design, religious art, announcements, graphic design and commissioned calligraphic art, cut stone inscriptions, and memorial documents.

Everything is possible with practice

Practicing will allow you to gain experience quickly and easily, since this can be done anywhere, with minimal materials and little pre-planning. Simply writing with any instrument on any paper available for practice. The most important thing is that you gain a steady hand and an understanding of how to vary your line widths.

You can also learn by trying to recreate the work of others. Get images of calligraphy, either from the internet or calligraphy books, and cover the image in tracing paper. Write on the tracing paper, trying to recreate the strokes of the original. If you intend to use ink, be aware that it may bleed through the paper and prepare accordingly. If you want to practice a little more formally, you can set up a grid to practice with.
