Calligraphy is an art of making handwriting (signs, symbols, letters etc.) visually attractive. This form of writing is related to expressing thoughts with harmony, beauty and creativity. It is a transmission of usual lettering into graceful and elegant handwriting.
As we have already stated that calligraphy is an art, we also stress on the fact that an art is not a fixed format of something that has to be strictly followed. Rather it is something that is derived out of a feeling, emotion, perception, aesthetic value or creative instinct.
The calligraphic art is said to have emerged in the Rome somewhere around 600 BC, which have later been advanced and structured as per the changing trends and requirements during the Medieval Ages. It has evolved and transformed mostly during the 10th Century to present. It was done with instrument having broad bases such as brushes, to get the appropriate texture.
In the modern days, creation of calligraphy fonts is no more limited to brushes. Today, calligraphists use pens with different sizes of nibs, wooden blocks, sticks (ice cream sticks) etc.
