These are incredible! Did you compile this group just for Bibliodyssey, or is there and actual "Calligraphy Exhibition" going on somewhere. I'm also intrigued by comparing the lettering styles of so many different cultures.

I like the idea of "a beautiful and healthy society through the art of calligraphy." After all, our physical activities have their effect on the brain...
