B4160. Left-Handed Calligraphy / Studley
B4160. Left-Handed Calligraphy by Vance Studley. 1979. 64pp. 5.5"x8.5". Paperback

The art of beautiful handwriting is no more difficult to master for the left-handed than for the right-handed student. But the left-handed writer requires a special orientation which most guidebooks on the subject do not provide. This excellent study remedies that situation handsomely. Generously illustrated, it offers full, intensive coverage of the art of calligraphy from the left-handed writer's point of view.

H117. Left Hand Oblique Holder
H117. Left Hand Oblique Penholder

Finally, an oblique holder for lefties! This holder will help keep the nib to a proper angle, leading to fewer paper snags. The flange is adjusted to hold the Nikko G (and other similarly sized nibs). If you would like us to adjust to a different nib, please tell us in the "Special Shipping Instructions" of your order.

FP133. Left Hand Pilot Parallel Pen (modified)
FP133. Left Hand Parallel Pen (These sizes are not made by Pilot.)

Finally, a left-oblique Parallel Pen is available! These pens start out as the original Parallel Pens (item FP67). Then we have each nib ground to the proper angle for left-handers. (Pilot does not warrant these modified pens; of course, John Neal Books does!). Specify size: 1.5, 2.4, 3.8, 6.0 mm.

FP95. Manuscript Beginner's Set
Manuscript Beginners Fountain Pen Set

Barrel, three nibs (fine, medium, 2B) one cartridge. A great inexpensive set for beginning classes. Specify RH or LH. Quantity discount for 3 or more.

The cartridge is already in the barrel. If you do not have two cartridges, you can push the one cartridge into the nib. The post inside the cylindar should puncture and hold the cartridge. The diagram on the back of the packaging shows how the cartridge goes on the nib.

Comes with a Manuscript Converter for using bottled ink, though some customers have had trouble getting the convertor to work well.

(This barrel is different from the deluxe set and shadow sets and the nibs are not interchangeable. Both use the same cartridges.)

To purchase additional barrels: FP92-D
To purchase additional nib units: FP103-D

M56. Zig Calligraphy Pen Oblique Cut
For Lefthanders and Arabic. 1mm, 2mm, 3mm.

These new water-based, left-handed markers from Zig come in three sizes including the very useful 1mm. Kate Wolff finds the felt tip to be harder/stiffer than other markers which means they give crisper letters and won't mush up as fast as some markers. Available in 3 colors and 3 sizes.

"I have been using the ZIG markers which you sent and they work very well indeed! I even passed them around in my calligraphy courses to get the reaction from students, both beginners and experienced old hands at in the matter. All found them terrific." - Kate Wolff
