Running script is the cursive form of standard script. Originated from late Eastern Han Dynasty; it is less compact than formal script and less cursive than cursive hand. Its obvious peculiarity is non-stop stroke used for finishing a character in one stroke and some strokes could be omitted or simplified but remains the recognizable structures of the characters so as to make the readers or appreciators understand the basic content and then eventually realized the aims of easily writing and straightaway understanding. The running script formed in Wei and Jin Dynasties, flourishing at all times till today. In the period of Eastern Jin Dynasty, Wang Xizhi and Wang Xianzhi‘s achievements in this aspect glorified the running script in their own way and via their own understanding to this style of calligraphy. The most representative works of this script is Preface of Lanting Pavilion by Wang Xizhi in Jin Dynasty. It is reputed by ancient people as "the best running script under heaven" because of its sturdiness and elegance. Some once compared the strength and grandeur delivered by the running script in the works as the scene of dragons jumping over the gate in the heaven and tigers lying in a gorgeous pavilion. Draft Eulogy for My Nephew by Yan Zhenqing in Tang Dynasty is famous for boldness and strength, honored as "the excellent running script only second to that of Wang Xizhi".

Li Yong (678-747) was a famous calligrapher of Tang Dynasty, who studied Wang Xizhi's Xing Shu. He left many inscription works. Among them, Li Si Xun Bei (Memorial to General Li Sixun, dated to 720 AD) is the famous one in running script, serving as the highly recommended model of regular script for Chinese calligraphy learners.


《李思训碑》全称《唐故云麾将军右武卫大将军赠秦州都督彭国公谥曰昭公李府君神道碑并序》,亦称《云麾将军碑》,李邕撰文并书。 唐开


:“李北海书《云麾将军碑》为其第一。” 清康有为《广艺舟双楫》:“若唐碑则怀仁所集之《圣教序》,不复论。外此可学,犹有三碑:李北海之《云麾将军》,寓奇变于规矩之中;颜平原之《裴将军》,藏分法于奋斫之内;《令狐夫人墓志》,使转顿挫,毫芒皆见,可为学行书石本佳碑,以笔法有入处也。”
