  • I have always admired the callagraphy in Orients’ language. I know it is their writing but in America, we call it an art. Mr. Kim is correct, there is an enlish writing in callagraphy and I’ll bet it is an art to Asian too.

  • I admired heartily to him for his hard working to perserve his tradition. He looks very nice person who willing Joel to invite him in and show him his art.

  • Beautiful callagraphy. I never forget when I was young kid read a book about history of callagraphy. I always saying want to try learn to write. It’s very interesting see Deaf man writing into bible book. He did amazing job. It’s really nice of him writing Joel’s name with the Date. It’s awesome!!
