Shodo is composed of the words "Sho" which means writing, and "Do", which means path or way.
Japanese Calligraphy originates from Calligraphy from China, dating back 3000 years. This art form from China reached Japan. In ancient times, Calligraphy in China and Japan has reflected their thinking and spirit, where a single brush stroke is used to show the person's thoughts, soul and emotion.
This book tells you how to use Japanese brush, how to use a brush, how to start writing letters with aesthetic style. This book shows brush technique for Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji.
This book is for Japanese Calligraphy beginner and experienced.
I moved from Tokyo, Japan to Denmark in 1986, and I have taught and introduced Calligraphy since 1987.
I learned Calligraphy from my mother since I was 6 years old. She taught Calligraphy at Silver University and schools, etc.
I have decided to write a book on Calligraphy because there are many in Scandinavia and internationally interested in trying to hold Japanese/Chinese brush with black ink and draw a line with black and white nuance. It is nice to have this book besides teaching in Calligraphy.
I hope the book will be useful to the reader. I'm also glad that I can present Shodo, Calligraphy here.
