Calligraphy in China

The later Chinese wrote in calligraphy. Calligraphy is made out of seven different lines called “the Seven mysteries.” Three of the mysteries were the dot, the horizontal line and the vertical line. They made their paint brushes out of animal hair and bamboo. And it took a really, really long time to make a book–over a year even. The Chinese were the first people to invent printing. They printed by carving wood and dipping it in ink.
