The word calligraphy, literally translated from the Greek, means beautiful writing. It refers not to one particular style, but to an enormous range of styles, which may be written with a variety of tools. The aim is not only to communicate ideas and information, but to do so in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

Caroline Joy Adams wrote the book on calligraphy.... literally. Find out more about An Italic Calligaphy Handbook on the Books page.

For years Caroline worked as a professional calligrapher in New York City. There she was able to develop the beautiful style that makes her line of Inspirational Gifts so popular.
