Bestroke Blog - Welcome!

In our Bestroke Blog, we’ll be exploring everything Chinese calligraphy - from the development of the various scripts throughout its long history to in-depth analysis of specific proverbs. Throughout the blog, we’ll be using Chinese calligraphy as a method for understanding more about Chinese language, culture and thinking.

The inclusion of Chinese characters in the text sections of the blog will be written in simplified Chinese (unless otherwise stated), and we aim to provide each instance with the Chinese pinyin (the method of romanization of Chinese), so that the Chinese learners among our readers will be able to pronounce the characters more easily. 

We really hope you'll enjoy learning more about Chinese calligraphy with us! If there is anything in particlar you'd like to see us blog about, tweet us at @Bestrokechina
