How was calligraphy used during the Renaissance?
I'm pretty sure most people wrote in calligraphy during that time period.
Calligraphy back then was like printers to us. Calligraphy needed to be almost, if not completely, perfect. It was used to copy books back then. Since the invention of the printing press and more advanced printers, calligraphy became less and less useful, and eventually has almost died out. It is still used in parts of the world today, but is not a prominent as it used to.
