What does your handwriting say about you? Does it move upward, downward, or remain straight and true? Is it pinched or loose? Are your capital letters big or small; your T’s crossed straight or at an angle; the stem of your I’s long or short? According to graphology, writing is like fingerprints illustrating the identity of the writer and characteristics of their personality. Calligraphy, on the other hand, is more than writing. It is an art form capable of revealing a mirror reflection of the calligrapher’s character and the exact conditions at the moment they start to write.

This week’s New Arrival features an antique Chinese calligraphy table. In China, the connection between handwriting and psychology has been explored for thousands of years through calligraphy. Like all art forms, calligraphy requires a specialized set of tools that can have a profound effect on the calligrapher’s performance. Just like a painter needs an easel, a calligrapher requires a stable surface to write upon. Yet, this table goes beyond stability. It sets a historic foundation for the calligrapher to accurately reflect the truth of their nature and message.
