P102. Modern Calligraphy Practice Pad
P102. WWC Modern Calligraphy Practice Pad. Provides instruction for the informal style of Copperplate known as Modern Calligraphy, using a copybook-style format that stresses letterform variation. Each copybook-style page comes with a tracing vellum overlay for you to write on, preserving the original pages. There are two different practice pads, which are produced by Written Word Calligraphy and Design. 8.5"x11", spiral-bound (at top). Choose Lowercase, Uppercase.

Click the photo to see sample pages of the pads.

Lowercase Alphabet: The two-page intro covers penholders, nibs, ink, paper, and their use. Then, after a page of basic stroke practice, comes the copybook section with one page for each letter. Each lowercase letter is presented with 10 variations and two lines of joined-letter practice. Each line has guide- and slant-lines printed in gray; the model letter is printed in black and is followed by several examples in gray to trace over; then there is space for you to make the letters on your own. Next comes connecting-letters practice, word practice, and phrase practice.

Uppercase Alphabet: The uppercase pad has the same two-page introduction and similar letter-by-letter copybook instruction, with 10 practice lines per letter; the last four lines add a lowercase letter. Next come three pages of number practice, word practice (using first names), and phrase practice.

B4227. Colour & Curves / Young
B4227. Colour and Curves: A Pilot Parallel Pen Workbook by Alice Young. 2018. 76pp. 8.5"x11" Paper.

Thoroughly covers the Parallel Pen and its use, including 16 pages of ink options, from Pilot cartridges to metallic inks! You learn how the pen writes through fun, non-letterform exercises. The last section is Blackletter instruction, with exemplars and exercise pages. Even if this hand is not your thing, this beautiful book belongs in your studio if you own a Parallel Pen. Full-color throughout.

The book includes a bonus pack of single sheets of the 16 exercise pages from the book!

Among a range of other papers, Gilbert Bond is highly recommended on page 48 of this book. Unfortunately manufacturers change papers without notice. While this paper is still great with most all inks, it is not really suitable for the various colours of Pilot Parallel Pen cartridge ink. You should explore the other papers mentioned on that page of the book. The JNB Graph Pads (P21 & P22) also work well with Parallel Pen ink as does the JNB practice pads (P25 & P22). The bonus pack of single sheets is printed on the paper used in these pads.
