    I think that we share quite a bit of common ground with the calligraphers
    and typesetters out there. The chisel tip marker that we know so well
    is really the tool of penmanship.

    I dedicate this thread to the roots of the handstyle.

    i've been learning chinese calligraphy almost all my life~ it's essential for students in asia to know how to do calligraphy. mostly in japan and china. they teach them in class once ur in elementary school all the way up to high school. it's pretty neat if ur into this kinda thing.. but gets kinda boring afterwards... like after doing 7-8 years of it..

    If you look right across tthe center line you will see "CLAIRE"

    the rest is just embelishment.
