The word calligraphy comes from
the Greek kalli meaning beautiful and graphia referring
to writing, and calligraphers today still emulate the elegant
letterforms of scribes throughout the centuries. Even in an age
of computer-generated type, this ancient craft is flourishing, but
it is also evolving. Calligraphy is now a respected visual art,
the creative expression of the written word.
