Description - The Art of Chinese Calligraphy by Stephen Addiss

One of the classic Zen arts, Chinese calligraphy is an increasingly popular form of self-expression. Enthusiasts say it brings physical and spiritual benefits, as well as increased discipline, patience, and persistence. Based on the success of our Art of Chinese Calligraphy Mega Mini Kit (nearly 100,000 sold), were introducing a deluxe kit devoted to this soothing, satisfying hobby. The 128-page book is copiously illustrated, providing a comprehensive beginners course in calligraphy. It is packaged in the beautifully designed kit with a water bowl and lid, ink stick, ink stone, spoon, brushes, engraved seal, and red ink pad. Other Chinese Calligraphy kits cant compete with our great price for this high-quality item, which makes a terrific gift for any artistically minded person.
