Tagline
A home for all passionate in the Art of Calligraphy.
Introduction

Beyond Calligraphy is an e-magazine founded in 2010. At its essence, it is exactly as the name implies, going beyond the traditional explorations of Japanese and Chinese calligraphy. It is encyclopedic in scope and specific in exploring particular aspects of calligraphy. Our aspiration is to be your primary source for all Calligraphy art news and information. Our founding team is based in Japan, Canada and the United States.

While the primary language presented began with English, it has expanded exponentially and has no limits. Original articles have been translated into languages which span the globe and reflect the growing community of the many people fascinated by calligraphy and sumi-e and related arts.

Wherever you begin to explore, on whichever path you join, whether as artist, calligrapher, painter, writer, poet, or reader and beyond, you will find mystery and passion. Through knowledge both practical and theoretical, a wealth of ideas can enrich your mind and heart.

Welcome to Beyond Calligraphy.
