What is fauxlligraphy? Fauxlligraphy or Faux Calligraphy is the art of faking a calligraphy look. Popular modern calligraphy is created with special pointed pen nibs, a nib holder, special ink, and high quality paper which will respond well to the pen and ink. Faux Calligraphy is created with a pencil, and/or pen and can be rendered on just about any paper.
