15 Must Follow Calligraphers on Dribbble

Calligraphy was a dying art just a few short years ago, but has recently been an emerging trend. For those that are unfamiliar, Calligraphy is a decorative handwriting produced with a pen or brush in one stroke (rather than many built up strokes). You may be most familiar with Calligraphy because of it’s use in wedding invitations and other formal flyers that use handwritten type, but it has recently taken off in the form of logo design.

I consider Calligraphy to be a very exclusive art, what I mean by that is, it’s not something many people do or are able to do because it takes a great deal of skill. In an effort to bring some awareness to this fine art I have gathered below 15 great Calligraphers that you should follow on Dribbble (or just follow in general). I picked these because I follow most of them and they pump out great work on a regular basis. With each Calligrapher I’ve posted a piece of their work, you can follow them by clicking on their name(s) below.
