Li Type (official script), also called zuoshu or bafen, is an ancient style of calligraphy that simplified the roundabout and curly strokes of seal characters to make writing much easier. Originating from silk and bamboo slip writings, the official script first appeared in the Warring States Period and flourished in the Han Dynasty, and therefore there are the ancient official script and the Han official script. The Han official script, often referred to as the official script, was the current character used in the Han Dynasty. It features vigorous, graceful flat strokes and compact, angular and unsophisticated structures, which people are fond of even today. The pictures of the four stamps show the well-known representative works of official script of the Han Dynasty that had great impact on calligraphy of the later ages.
