The word calligraphy literally means beautiful writing. It is a fine art of skilled penmanship that is both a delight to the eye and an inspiration to the spirit. Before the invention of the printing press over five hundred years ago, this is the way books were made. Each copy was handwritten out by a scribe working in a scriptorium. The hand writing was done with quill and ink onto materials like vellum or parchment. This obviously took a great deal of time, but the result was a masterpiece.
Today calligraphy continues to flourish as an art of beautiful, elegant handwriting that is timeless. American Stationery offers a wide assortment of calligraphy products for you to choose from, and most of them are hand drawn by our in house calligrapher. This highly decorative handwriting appears to waltz across the paper on our personalized products. A selection of notes, sheets, calling cards, and correspondence cards are all available with hand calligraphy.
These four items and many more are available for you to order at American Stationery. We are pleased that we can offer the elegance of calligraphy at such an affordable price.
