Calligraphy means beautiful writing. It comes from the Greek words “Kallos”  means beauty and “Graphien” means to write. Edward Johnston (a British craftsman) is regarded as being the father of modern calligraphy. Calligraphy is a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a pen, ink brush or other writing instruments. A contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as  “ the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious and skillful manner”.
