Royal Practics


“Write a story using no more than 100 words.”

Some of us believe that it’s literally impossible to write a good story with that kind of limitation on our imaginations. There’s just not enough room and space for creativity to blossom.

But check this out: although we may not be able to create art out of only 100 words, we can however create art through words. We don’t even need to use more than two words.

Royal Practics is a video of Russian calligrapher and graphic artist Evgeny Tkhorzhevsky who creates beauty out of only a few words. We don’t usually see typesetting and font design as a kind of art but it is in fact, one the most beautiful art forms in the world that has lasted centuries. It requires royal practice.
