Calligraphy Gallery outside a Building in Hong Kong!

Look up! There is a calligraphy gallery up there!

Back in the days when people wanted to make a sign for their business they would ask some calligraphy masters to design for them.

The masters would pick the right fonts to suit the image of the business, E.g font which would people feel powerful for Kung Fu school, elegant font for tea shop etc.

When it is handmade, which means it’s unique. Many of the signs stuck on the wall of the business still persist even though the business might have already gone. Try to look up and explore what you can find which might surprise you!
