Calligraphy in daily life

As you can see from these pictures below, many different styles and mediums of calligraphy can be found in everyday life in China, in even the most unexpected locations, such as on the sign for a pub, the sign for a restaurant, on a cup of a drink, outisde many stores, accompanying murals, to draw attention to advertisement, and many more places.

Calligraphy is not merely a form of art, it can have practical use and is widely used in China. It can evoke emotion, or draw attention more effectively than conventional type-based fonts.
