Korean Calligraphy

Asian art, in general, appeals to me. I really like the spareness of the illustrations. The book pictured is in both English and Korean so that more people can enjoy the messages as well as the art work.

One Hundred Years Of Korean Calligraphy (1848 - 1948) is a lovely work in a nice slipcase. The cover of the slipcase reproduces one of the art works inside.

Also shown is a page from the book. As you can dimly see, beside each image is a reproduction of the Korean calligraphy and an English translation. I have reproduced the meaning below.
