Greek Calligraphy

The Greek Alphabet

In my pursuit to learn Modern Greek, I've had fun playing with the letterforms of this beautiful alphabet. Traditionally, Greeks don't tend to write in script. There is a history of Greek cursive, but the letterforms didn't stick, and cursive isn't taught in schools here. As such, I've been doing a lot of research and experimenting to play with the letterforms and push the bounds. Old Greek signage around Athens has provided lots of inspiration, but I've also played with the glyphs a lot on my own.
