  1. The third edition of Jaki Svaren's classic calligraphy and paleography book has just been released. This edition is very similar to the long-out-of-print second edition with some improvements in design. It is slightly larger in format, including the handwritten text, and it is spiral-bound, so it lies flat when opened. Many of us old folks learned from the earlier editions and treasure them. Now, this masterpiece of calligraphy history and instruction will be available to a new generation of those interested in beautiful writing through the ages. One of the best features of this bo
  2. Wouldn't it would be entertaining to post favorite recipes written using favorite pens and/or old handwritten recipes that came from friends and family? I am starting with a German Stuffed Turkey recipe given to me by a long ago exchange student's mother. If you are so inclined, please share your own and we can all join in two exciting obsessions! As Jacques Pepin would say, "Happy cooking!" written with my Edison Nouveau Premiere F nib
  3. I just sign up to the Fountain Pen Network, I'm a big fan of cursive & Calligraphy writing. I purchase a Franklin Christoph fountain pen. It writes smooth but the weight of the pen is heavy it takes a little getting use to. I've got back to practicing my cursive after so many years of not doing so. Here is a quick sample of my writing I wrote this paragraph pretty quick. I am a left handed, tell me what you think of my writing, & tell me what i need to work on. Thanks By the way I use a combination of forearm & whole arm movement.
  4. Here is a view of my penmanship, yesterday I posted a topic but the comments were saying that is was pen small. So I decided to pen a poem & alphabet with big letters. I'm not used to writing large words I'm do my best work writing small. Tell me what you think of it. Thanks
  5. Just writing a Poem in cursive today, usually I'll do my drills before I write. This time I didn't, tell me what you think.
  6. I decided to write a quick paragraph, I pen this pretty fast. The ink I was using wasn't flowing smoothly from the nib. So it was slightly difficult to maintain control, but I felt I did pretty good. Tell me what you guys think. Here is some vintage writing from C.P. Zaner considered the best penman to every live.
  7. For every person who wants to improve on their cusrive writing should be doing drills to get use to the whole arm or forearm movement. Plus it's a great warm up before writing, here are some drills that I practice daily. I did direct & indirect ovals, and push pull drills. At the bottom I pen the alphabet just for kicks. When doing these drills don't use any finger or wrist movement. Tell me what think about doing drills. I hope to see other people's on how they do drills. Also on ending forms. the letter d, r, & t. these endling forms should be written only on words that end wit
  8. Hello FPN! Long time lurker, finally decided to join up. Well, I currently work as an Emergency Medical Technician in the Greater LA, and surrounding areas, mainly as a Medical Taxi, as the inside joke goes. I can either drive or attend, but my current permanent partner prefers too drive, so I took up the clipboard and pen and took over the Attendant's spot. Back in December of 2012, I picked up cheapy calligraphy set from a Staple's. I don't recall the manufacturer, but it was pretty terrible, no ink flow, constant leaking, et cetera. I came across a Manuscript Italic Nib set; while cheap
