Looking for Calligraphic Inspiration?

I received an e-mail the other day from Roy M. asking if I knew of any good calligraphy blogs. As I did not, I began to Google around. I found sites which featured eye candy like Gentian Osman’s at Drawing with a Squirrel, Schin Loong’s at Open Ink Stand, and Eliza Holliday’s at  The Letterist.

Molly Suber Thorpe at Plurabelle Calligraphy has written a book entitled Modern Calligraphy and offers physical workshops. Molly Lever at  Art du Jour offers online workshops.

A Place to Flourish offers the anticipations, experiences and reflections of a calligrapher.

But I really seemed to have struck the mother load when I found this post: 40 Fantastic Calligraphy Blogs which has links from calligraphy artists around the world  – many who are are largely influenced by the cultures in which they live and work.

Does anyone else know of any good calligraphy blogs?
