Calligraphy is an ancient art with records dating back to 213 B.C. The word “calligraphy” is derived from two Greek words: “kalos” meaning fine, and “grapho” to write. With the early use of reeds and brushes, and the evolution of illumination, calligraphy quickly developed into an early art form. The Romans were the first to begin using papyrus. Many records indicate the French kings used papyrus for charters. Considered the foremost art form of the Orient, its journey from China to Japan took place around the eighth century. With the invention of the Guttenberg press in the fifteenth century, this art form began a steady decline.
