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.

Gloomy. This is for the freaky man that took my sunny happy day and made it, gloomy!! 😒 I was waiting to turn left at a intersection, the light turned red and my front tires happen to be on the cross walk. As this (not so pleasant looking) man was walking across the cross walk, I did the "I'm sorry im in your way, wave" He stopped right in front of my car, looked right into my soul, and did a very intense double 🖕🏼🖕🏼 for a good 10 seconds!! Then slowly walked away, still staring at me, and still had the birds up. 😳😳 👈🏼pretty sure that's what my face was doing! Who does that!?! Did it really put him out that much?! Unreal. Hindsight, I wish I laid on my horn and scared the heck outta him! Big afternoon for me! 🤣
