One of the classic Zen arts, Chinese calligraphy is an increasingly popular form of self-expression. Enthusiasts say it brings physical and spiritual benefits, as well as increased discipline, patience, and persistence. Based on the success of our Art of Chinese Calligraphy Mega Mini Kit™ (nearly 100,000 sold), we're introducing a deluxe kit devoted to this soothing, satisfying hobby. The 128-page book is copiously illustrated, providing a comprehensive beginner's course in calligraphy. It is packaged in the beautifully designed kit with a water bowl and lid, ink stick, ink stone, spoon, brushes, engraved seal, and red ink pad. Other Chinese Calligraphy kits can't compete with our great price for this high-quality item, which makes a terrific gift for any artistically minded person.
