For some reason there are not very many versions of the word aikido written in calligraphy on the internet. A few of my friends in budo have been buying expensive pieces from Japan, that frankly are not composed well to my eye. Fear not reader, I will gather pieces for us to discuss and learn from so you too can have great taste in calligraphy.
The above piece is splendid to my eye. I am fond of the older styles, and this looks to me to be a bone script inspired piece. I love the writers use of the archaic 'DO' in the upper left corner.
