  3. Hello FPNers, I'm all about vintage flex and want to use a rough adaptation of Copperplate for journaling and letters. A while back I purchased a lovely little gold-filled ring top Wahl FP with a wet noodle #2 nib. The nib writes about a Western EF when not flexed, so I'd like to get a finer nib. My question is: should I have the nib reground to a finer point for calligraphy purposes or should I get another pen entirely? Will the small size of the pen make it harder to control for styles like Copperplate or Spencerian, or does the weight of the all-metal construction make up for it? Control is fine with the EF nib, but I'm wondering if it will be harder to control with a needlepoint nib. My big pen purchase goal for next year is to score a wet noodle Waterman 52. Would it be better to have the nib on a larger pen like that made into a needlepoint? Thanks for any advice!

The court hand is very beautiful, but also rather hard to read, there is a book here which will help you read it: https://archive.org/stream/courthandrestore00wrigrich#page/n5/mode/2up Here are a few plates from "A Tutor To Penmanship": http://i.imgur.com/iyAu63z.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ladHWUw.jpg http://i.imgur.com/XA8p78e.jpg

  6. http://i.imgur.com/lQyI6VY.jpg http://i.imgur.com/fLP1JTF.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Lmytvlt.jpg Snell was born in 1670, died in 1733. This book of his was published in 1712, having been engraved by George Bickham. Bickham commented on Snell's work in the introduction: "the Originals of that BOOK were the Best I ever wrought after: And tho' I have for the most part, kept close to the Proportion of the Letter, yet I think it impossible for any Engraver to Reach that Delicacy and Spirit, that is produced from the Freedom and Boldness of his Hand" Snell was apprenticed as a boy to a writing master of no particular note, but through his tireless study and practise from engraved works of Louis Barbedor (the French writing master) he attained great skill. Joseph Champion was a pupil of Snell. Snell's work was greatly admired at the time. Snell was also an expert accountant, bookkeeper and arithmetician and taught those subjects as well as penmanship.

  7. Hi all, Does anyone know of a good script/lettering style that would look elegant when written small (under 8mm majuscule height) with a modern flex fountain pen such as a Noodler's Ahab, Konrad, or Serwex/Dilli? These pens don't always have quick returns, but they allow the inks I use to shade to my liking. I've been using a copperplate variant, but it's just nowhere near what it needs to be to look appealing. They can't really do quick turn arounds with the hairlines/swells and it comes off just looking like lazy copperplate with too much ink. Any ideas? Feel free to post pics if you think of something. PT.
