"Calligraphy is a form of visual and moving meditation. As old school as this sounds, calligraphy is about discovering the beauty of illuminated manuscripts, marvelling at low-tech ancient masterpieces, opening up pinterest to be overwhelmed by modern masterpieces that dance on the page and take your breath away. Letters that originate in archaic form, yet have evolved into new and exciting forms today."
