Hello Inky world :D

 

I am looking for a recommendation on calligraphy books... 

 

I would like to buy my partner one as a gift, she is rather new to it but very eager to be a pro! So I suppose something for beginners perhaps or a little more in depth? I'm not so sure...

Any recommendations? :D

 

Please let me know...

 

Inkysplashes over and out!

Welcome home.  Pull up a stump and set a spell.

 

Contact Pendemonium and ask if they have any of the old Sheaffer Calligraphy sets that came with pens, inks, paper and a lesson book.

Hi! I have the traditional "The Complete Beginner's Guide To Calligraphy" and it has been very useful to understand calligraphy and to practice. Although I didn't commit to the extension it requires, it did help me a lot to correct mistakes and control my handwriting. It's not only simple and easy to follow, but also beautiful and I would recommend it for a nice present. Hope this help!

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!
