30 inspiring calligraphy works

Calligraphic fonts have been popular in the design world for a long time. But we don’t see hand-lettered calligraphy nearly as often, outside of wedding invitations.

Hand-lettered calligraphy is beautiful and has an organic feel to it that’s often lacking in digital designs.

Even hand-lettering or sketching your designs prior to digitizing them can add a whole new warmth and style to your finished work.

Below are thirty beautiful calligraphic works of art, all of which at least started out with pen (or pencil) and paper.
