25 Artistic Examples of Calligraphy for Inspiration

For those who are not aware, calligraphy is not a modern concept and has been prevalent since ages. It was originated back in the Greek era where ‘calligraphy’ was a collection of the words ‘kallos’ (meaning ‘beautiful’) and ‘graphe’ (meaning ‘to write’). Prior to the discovery of the printing press, literature in all forms was written manually. This meant that various expert scribes wrote on scrolls and parchments by means of quills. Even after the advent of digital printing and technology, the art of calligraphy is popular among designers and creative artists.

The unique stylized form of writing continues to impress people in this day and age. Moreover, there have been various digital fonts created that replicate the calligraphy art in order to be incorporated with ease. Calligraphy has been prevalently used by designers in typography, poster designs and other graphic artworks. Some of us have never seen a calligraphic artwork other than those in wedding cards.
