Modern calligraphy is any calligraphy that is not traditional calligraphy. Traditional calligraphy styles like Spencerian and Copperplate have been around for years, and you create them with very particular strokes and formations.Many people today have embraced traditional calligraphy styles, and it seems the traditional calligraphy community opinion splits on modern calligraphy. Some traditionalists love the creativity that modern calligraphy allows. Others, however, dislike the deviation from order and rules. While I respect the latter traditionalist point of view, I, myself, think that modern calligraphy is amazing! It provides a creative outlet for people of many skill levels, and I’m grateful that it’s part of my own life.
