Although calligraphy might just look like fancy letters, it has a long history. From the Ancient Chinese to modern uses, calligraphy forces the eye to observe the aesthetic of a letter rather than the meaning of the letter. Throughout this quiz, we want to see how many letters your eyes will be able to identify.
Unlike now, unique handwriting skills held a valuable place in society. Individualized takes on calligraphy and handwriting made documents harder to forge before the use of copy machines. As we go through this quiz, we are going to present you with 40 photos of beautifully written uppercase and lowercase letters. Do you think you'll be able to identify all of them?
When you see the letter we have presented, take a moment to make sure you know what it is before you make your selection. The furthest thing from typeface, calligraphy letters might take a little study to get them right. Unless you've practiced your calligraphy skills recently, you might find some of the letters you see a little challenging to identify. However, you will enjoy learning the tidbits about the history of letters once you answer. How well will you do with letters written in calligraphy? Now's your chance to find out.
