What is Calligraphy?

Calligraphy is the art of producing decorative handwriting or lettering with a pen or brush. The dictionary definition of calligraphy is ‘handwriting or penmanship’, or simply ‘beautiful writing’.

The word has its root in the Greek language. ‘Kalli’ means beautiful and ‘graphia’ is the Greek word for writing. It is therefore the visual art of writing.
