The Museum exposition presents unique samples of the lettering arts, world masterpieces created by calligraphy masters of standing reputation. The exhibited items include refined specimens of Slavonic and European lettering, the elegant works of the Jewish and Arab calligraphy schools, strict forms of classical Japanese calligraphy, samples of ancient Chinese writing, Russian and foreign books on the art of calligraphy, rare single copy hand-written editions, writing utensils of the past and present, depictions of the history of calligraphy, and displays revealing new aspects of the visual arts.
After the International Exhibition of Calligraphy in St. Petersburg in late September, the museum exposition became more than five times bigger.
In autumn a true gem was added — the Hand-written Constitution of the Russian Federation, created by members of the National Union of Calligraphers. Visitors will also have a chance to enjoy the calligraphy works made by the students of famous masters — the young men who stand yet at the very beginning of the path to mastery their teachers had attained.
