Calligraphy, the Forgotten Art

Do you know where computer fonts come from? When Steve Jobs was a freshman in college, he took a calligraphy class which later inspired him to create the first font for Mac. It didn’t take long to develop multiple new fonts after it, and other software companies followed. Today, we have numerous fonts to pick from in our PC’s and phones, and it’s all thanks to calligraphy.

This forgotten art has recently become popular again. Thanks to social media, more and more people are showing interest in calligraphy and mastering it. You can see many mesmerizing photos and videos on Instagram, and today we’re sharing some of our favorite ones with you.
