    Well…Some of these are really unique calligraphy…Some of the old religious calligraphic styles used here are excellent…But I am not happy with some styles in the list, they are too complex in their design making it difficult to read…Nevertheless got to see some unique and creative designs…

    • Fisher on April 15th, 2010 at 5:37 am

      MAYBE SOME HARD-TO-READ STYLE IS THE THINGS WHAT ART REQUIRE…
