What is Macintosh Calligraphy?

A unique graphics application designed in Japan in 1986 that allows one to practice calligraphy skills using various brushes and inks.  Thickness of strokes varies by the speed of your mouse movement.  A somewhat difficult program to use, but can be fun. A disk of example art is included. The primary app disk is bootable and shows a very uniquely customized Japanese Desktop. Unfortunately, the app does not allow saving to various graphics formats usable on modern computers.  The graphics format of files it saves seems to be proprietary.  You could just take a screenshot though, for easier file exports compatible with modern computers.
