Don't limit your script repertoire. Like the pointed pen, the pointed brush makes a wider stroke with pressure. In this instructional manual, Linda Schneider shows how you can write Spencerian and Copperplate with a pointed brush marker (or a brush). Create beautiful and colorful script letters anywhere, anytime without having to deal with liquid ink. One section covers brush-written ornamental flourishes. Linda's favorite brush markers for script are Pitt Brush Pens (M43, M43-LS, M43-LS2) and a Pentel Sign Pen (M97).
