We can define calligraphy as the art of writing correctly and aesthetically. The history of calligraphy dates back more than 4000 years in China. Since then, it has developed in different languages and each person has been able to generate their own style when writing, although following the social conventions of writing.

With the advance in computer technology and the creation of the typographies it was thought that calligraphy would be in total disuse, but this is not the case. Especially in recent years has had a revival, where the art of writing by hand is valued, far from the perfection of digital typography systems.

When you add to calligraphy the effort to decorate the letters more than usual, make drawings and use different materials to dye the shapes, it turns into lettering. In any case, both are closely linked and the results of the mastery of the technique are wonderful, in the aesthetic sense.

With our more than 35 calligraphy books and exercises in PDF format, you will be able to learn the art of writing with beauty and distinction. We have compiled all the necessary manuals and step-by-step guides for you to achieve expertise.
