Calligraphy Kit Review and Project

Calligraphy is a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument, brush, or other writing instruments. A contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as “the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner”.

I picked this kit up at my local Barnes and Nobles the other day. It’s an inexpensive kit that has everything you need to get started. You can find similar kits at most retailers on line and in stores. A perfect gift for Christmas for anyone interested in the art of Calligraphy or handwriting in this digital age. Are just a fun kit to try out yourself.  Lisa
