The Art of Calligraphy
Calligraphy is a very loose concept because writing styles can vary from functional to artistic, legible to non-legible, and other factors that depend on the context of the calligraphy. However, the constants that are almost universal amongst calligraphy include that it must be hand-written, it must be presented with some artistic flourish and style, and that it is considered an art rather than a more simple and practical way of writing.
Calligraphy is something that almost all cultures shared even dating back to ancient times. Whether it was Asia, India, or European cultures, they all prided themselves on artisan penmanship on all formal documentations. Today, calligraphy has developed into a wide variety of styles as cultures are becoming more connected and are able to draw more inspirations from each others calligraphy.
