CALLIGRAPHY… the thing i luv doin!

Senior – tell your hobbies.

Me – Ma’am it’s Sketching,solving sudoku n calligraphy.

Senior – Calligraphy??what is it about? where u use it?

Me – Calligraphy is the art of making beautiful handwriting. I use them in cards, magazine,posters, at times decorating my room etc.


Most of the people are not familiar with this word- CALLIGRAPHY. Well, i also don’t know a lot about it but whatever i know i would like to share.

In greek,” kallos” means beauty n “graph” means writing. It’s a fine art of skilled penmanship. Before the invention of the printing press some 500 years ago, it was the way books were made. Each copy was handwritten out. The hand writing was done with quill and ink onto materials like parchment(made 4m sheep/goat skin). Calligraphy z an art dat jus abt any1 can do. All u need is a pen and a paper, and you’re ready to do calligraphy! Indeed it requires very few materials – u dont need very much space n since u can probably write anyway, you already know the basics!  It’s a form in wic patience n attention 2 detail r more important than artistic talent. Dat means u don’t hv to be an “artist” to be good at calligraphy! It’s one of the most enjoyable skills dat a person can acquire. In short,calligraphy z really FUN! There are many types of calligraphy like arabic,roman,chinese etc but i haven’t learnt all of dem. V can also use different kinds of pen n pencils wic r really very beautiful.

So am trying to learn the different styles of writing n also 2 hv a gud collection of calligraphy pens. Btw my bday is abt 2 cum…so readers might have understood… what kind gift…. 🙂 😉
