The work on letters provides to calligraphers a wide field of graphic expression. Their perfect mastery of historical aphabets allow to explore some new ways with a total freedom and a creative vision. So, they introduce new rhythms and gesture, purposely distort the letters to get original strokes, sometime to the ends of the readability but conserving the spirit of the origin letters.
