Calligraphy is a highly refined form of visual art that is related/originates in writing. Usually calligraphy is done with a broad tip brush or other writing instruments such as a quill, pen and qalam. The art of calligraphy has flourished for thousands of years in East Asia, South Asia, the Islamic world such as Persia and finally found a foothold in the Western World. In the West we need to recognize that calligraphy is identifiable by the use of Latin script after about 600 BC. Celtic illuminated manuscripts and christianity during the medieval times used calligraphy to copy the New Testament and other sacred texts. From Roman times, this is where uncal and half-uncal originated. The finest examples of calligraphy were clearly produced in all of Asia that also included the Islamic world. Islamic calligraphy is often association with geometric patters on walls and ceilings of mosques whereas Asian art forms were more active with producing fantastic works of art on paper. Of course all artists used as many different kind of media as possible to excel in their artistic excellence. Many modern artists have re-approached the ancient forms to produce high quality artworks.
