Written and visual art go hand in hand perfectly, and the lines between the two are constantly being blurred by calligraphers or people who do book covers. Books have been around in one form or another since ancient times, but it was not until Gutenberg invented the printing press in the 15th century, that books really began to spread. In fact, Gutenberg’s printing press remained virtually unchanged for another 5 centuries, and is still the basis of all printing presses everywhere.
Sculpture is beautiful, ancient and hard. Unlike other visual arts, such as painting or photography, it operates in three dimensions, making the end result different from every angle it is viewed.

Man has always dreamed of immortality, and the visual arts are one of the only methods through which we can, at least philosophically, achieve it. Portraits have been around virtually since cave painting, the oldest “cave portrait” dating back to 26, 000 years ago. In the Ancient World, portraits became immensely popular in several cultures, each having their own style and creed behind creating them. The Egyptians, for example, created a huge amount of portraits, depicting their rulers and gods.
