A Brief History of Calligraphy

Some of the oldest calligraphy is Oracle bone script dating back to the China's Shang (Yin) Dynasty around 1600 BC. The "Law of Writing" had heavy influence in Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese writing, making its way throughout Europe. 

RD Calligraphy honors the history of calligraphy, dedicated to the practice of giving spirit to each hand lettered character, word, and phrase.



Raquel's extraordinary talent for calligraphy lies in her ability to capture the nuances, feelings, and emotions in every word she crafts. Even the simplest letters are translated declarations of beauty and elegance. It is an honor to have her art in my home and to share with friends.
