Did you know that the English word calligraphy, meaning “beautiful writing,” comes directly from a Greek noun of the same meaning? The Greek word for calligraphy is καλλιγραφία (kalligraphía) and is a combination of two Greek roots: κάλλος (kállos), meaning “beauty,” and‎ γράφω (gráfo), meaning “to write.”

In English or Greek, the visual art of calligraphy is stunning.
