Calligraphy is a creative writing style where the pressure is varied to create thick and slim lines, all in a solitary stroke. It generally involves a nibbed pen or brush. The writing is readable, but is generally lavish as well as embellished with flourishes. The major sub-styles are typical calligraphy and also modern-day calligraphy. These typefaces are much more creative than the ordinary font style, usually using a script design to imitate the look of handwriting.
