When I was choosing a script to learn, I was interested in Spencerian because of the philosophy behind it. Articles talk about how the shapes were based on nature and mention that learning the philosophy was an important element to learning the script. However, there isn't much mention of this in the six-book set from Mott Media. Just the theory book and the five copy books - which are lovely and I'm learning a lot from these books. However, I want to also learn about the philosophy that inspired this style of writing. Are there any resources out there that cover this?
Hi all, In the past I posted a project where I handcopied a 2,000 year philosophy book - The Enchiridion of Epictetus. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/272296-project-handcopying-a-small-book-epictetuss-enchiridion/ Thanks to everyone for their comments. I'm now in the process of reproducing this handwritten project into a book. I used 99designs to invite designers to suggest covers and would welcome the votes of the members of fpn on their favorites. Over a 100 designs were submitted and top finalists are here for your review - http://99designs.com/other-packaging-label-
Can someone help me to identify the fountain pen in the photo? The hands are from Edmund Husserl, the founder of Phenomenology. I don't know exactly the year of the photo, but it could be from 1920 - 1938 (the year of his death). The friend who posted it in Facebook works in the Husserl Archives (Leuven), and says it is a pen with an ink reservoir (not a dip pen). Curiously, he appears to be using it with the nib upside down, surely to get a finer stroke.
