Text pages and calligraphy

360 Discovered works of art
In addition to language, the development of writing is one of the most significant achievements in human history. Not only gathering knowledge, but also holding on and passing on to future generations, distinguishes us like no other species in the world. The fascination of the written word probably lies largely in this very meaning. But the pure beauty of writing and calligraphy also impresses us all over the world. The properties of timelessness and beauty adequately describe the written word and are still a permanent fixture in human life. Especially the calligraphy impresses with its aesthetics. This art of beautiful writing has great historical significance and is still relevant today. Probably the most famous calligraphies come from Asia, where they have a long traditional meaning. With the ink stick or the brush brought to the paper, these calligraphies have a special expressiveness and beauty that also captivates the Western world. Especially in China, Japan and Korea calligraphies are represented to this day and an elementary part of the art and culture of the countries. But also, for example, the Hebrew or Arabic calligraphy reveals to the beholder the richness of their beauty.

In addition to these magnificent representations of various writings, even seemingly simple pages of a book attract the attention. Particularly historical writings and works impress with their technical conciseness, unique representations and colourfulness. Whether pages from the Bible or various other writings, the written word never loses its meaning and has an extraordinary beauty.

The Text Pages and Calligraphy category brings together a multitude of ancient writings from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. Chinese calligraphy meets Kufic calligraphy and is supplemented by numerous other documents.
