Knowing calligraphy tools and basic rules well is essential to becoming a good calligrapher.
First of all, it is useful to know that writing is the action of writing to fix thought in visual form through the use of graphic signs.
While calligraphy is the art of forming characters of a script clearly and elegantly, typefaces are signs executed with their own rules.
The alphabet is the set of letters of a given language arranged in a conventional way.
The writing body is the distance of the two parallel horizontal lines that determines the height of the middle letters.
Simple rods are those straight rods that have the perfect full and are divided into ascending and descending rods.
The calligraphic degree is the unit of measurement chosen to proportion the letters of a writing and corresponds to the greatest coarseness of a rod drawn with a nib.
The shape of calligraphy nibs derives from the way quill pens were anciently worked. Two fundamental cuts still characterize its structure today,
a vertical one to allow for ink reserve and a horizontal one that determines the shape of the tip.
The squaring of the calligraphic nib is of paramount importance because it is what gives very different characteristics to the writing strokes.
