is the ancient art of beautiful writing carried out by dedicated
artisans. Calligraphy draws its name from the combination of two
greek words that literally mean 'beautiful writing'. It is often
thought of as a specialist craft, only for the artistically gifted.
to the 15th century (when the printing press was invented) variations
of an alphabet that originated over 3000 years ago were used by
scribes to hand-write every book, pamphlet and manuscript. The varieties
of hand-written alphabets originated from different countries and
periods in history. The style of alphabet used by the Romans was
what we now call capital or upper case. It was not until the 8th
century AD that lower case letters were created.
the Renaissance period the Italic style was developed, while Gothic
was widely used during Medieval Europe. These days we generally
consider our handwriting as a means to an end, without artistic
flare. So, although Calligraphy is not a necessity, we are now able
to appreciate the pleasures of fine writing.
