Calligraphy (from kallos "beauty" and graphẽ "writing") is a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument or brush in one stroke (as opposed to built up lettering, in which the letters are drawn). A contemporary definition of calligraphic practice is "the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner".
