Chinese Calligraphy (shu fa 書法)

Chinese calligraphy is considered not just "beautiful handwriting" but also an art that is appreciated primarily for its aesthetic qualities. For examples of the various sripts used see Styles of Chinese Calligraphy.

For more general information see Suggested Readings.
