Harvest Crittenden
Supply List
Materials List:

• mechanical pencil in pt. 3 or pt. 5 with plenty of lead. Sumo Grip pencil with 0.5mm lead, S681

• tracing paper for flourishing. Borden Riley 9"x12" pad, P43.
• 12" ruler ( I use the 2" wide C-thru rulers with the graph lines. They come in very handy.) We stock the exact ruler she wants, S798.
• blotter paper that is appx. 12" x 18" <- ours is 11x17", Harvest says 2 sheets of 11 x 17 will work, S261-11.

• A 3-ring binder or folder for all of the handouts that will be downloaded. This item is not available from JNB.


Helpful to have, but not necessary:

Good lighting. I use an Ott light so that my eyes do not tire as quickly

I37. McCaffery's Penman's Ink
McCaffery’s Penman’s Ink
1 oz. jar.

This oak gall ink was developed with the help of leading penmen of today to provide an ink similar to that used during America’s golden age of Ornamental Penmanship in the 19th and 20th centuries. With a newly opened bottle, the ink writes brown but turns a dense black. Good for fine hairlines. See Colored Inks for colors and ivory McCaffery’s (colors and ivory are not oak gall inks).
Formulated for the pointed pen which is used for Spencerian, copperplate, etc, not for the broad-edged pen used for italic, blackletter (gothic), etc.

N113. Nikko G Nib
These nibs from Japan are hand cut, extremely smooth, and long lasting. They are chrome plated and have a medium flex. Great for Spencerian. Smooth writing with no burrs or scratchiness. Highly recommended by Michael Sull. Extremely popular with pointed pen men and women!

P25-100. JNB Practice Pad 8.5x11. 100 shts.
Pad of about 100 sheets. This bright white, extra smooth finish paper is very similar to Joe Vitolo's favorite paper for pointed pen writing. (Unfortunately Joe's favorite is no longer made.) Blank sheet; no ruled lines. 8.5"x11". This pad is great for Spencerian, Copperplate and other pointed pen work including off-hand flourishing.

While this pad has long been preferred for Copperplate, we have found that this same paper works eqaully well for broad edge calligraphy. In fact, this is the same paper used in our Graph Pads (P01, P21, P22). The smooth paper accepts most liquid inks, as well as fountain pen and markers.

***This pad has replaced P19***
