East Asian Calligraphy

I love the paintbrush style of traditional chinese calligraphy, it has a whole art form to it that has been developed over thousands of years. It has a lot of tradition about it. - For instance the tools used are the four treasures of study - brush, paper, ink and inkstone, with a seal to sign. To practice calligraphy well takes years of practice and copying other exemplary texts.
