Antonios,

Simply gorgeous work... if you want to call it that. :D

Those vintage Waterman nibs are simply incredible aren't they?

Cheers!

Keith

Thanks Keith, and THANK YOU JAMES.

James it is a humbling experience to share space with your exemplars.
I hope that you overcome your health problems and keep showing us what a real caligrapher can produce.

Keith I noticed a very nice sample of yours around - Even if it was not very visible I could see a very nice writing character. Please show us more.

You are most welcome, Antonios. I too noticed Keith's exemplar -- it was very nice indeed.

Hi Kate,

Since many of us are posting samples of their hands here (I wonder who started it all :rolleyes: ), it would be a great idea if you could comment on areas where legibility can be improved. And to which section of your book should we make reference. I know my regular cursive needs a lot of work or repair :(

Antonios,

You have reason to be proud. Wonderful!

Though I'm not normally a big fan of pink, I love these pens. I have one, which is out on loan.

I'm sorry we missed one another at the Philadelphia Pen club meeting, when I would have liked to compare various nibs.

Fred

Antonios:

Thank you for the lovely sample. I fear that if I wrote with anything more flexible than a nib which resembles a 10d nail the result would be (a) a very sprung nib; (cool.gif a very unhappy me; and © a huge blot on the paper. This is why a have a great deal of respect for you and the others who can do such delicious writing with a flex nib.

Thank you also for the links below your signature. Very interesting ... indeed!

By the way: for duffers like me, What is a "pink" nib?
There will be no crisis this week. My calendar is already full.
