N155. Luthis Pens
N155. Luthis Pens.

Folded metal pens for expressive writing and formal calligraphy. The tips are aluminum; the handles are unfinished wood. Approximately 6" long. Four styles are offered; each writes differently. The pens are from Argentina; they are labeled with their Spanish names.

"They give great edges and hairlines and flow beautifully. For as thin an edge as it has, it's amazingly stable. And the thin handle makes manipulation easy. I can recommend them highly." - Carrie Imai

Butterfly (Mariposa). Has two writing edges.
Moth (Polillita). A smaller version of Butterfly (Mariposa).
Fan (Abanico). The writing edge curve is similar to a standard folded pen or calligraphy ruling pen.
Dragonfly (Libélula). The writing edge has a unique curve that allows you to change writing styles quickly. Carol DuBosch’s favorite of the four.

Purchase all four and save: use code N155-S4.

P104. Rhodia R Pads
P104. Rhodia R Pad.

70 sheets of premium 90g Ivory paper, thicker than regular Rhodia paper, but with the same super-smooth finish that is prized by scribes for Spencerian, Copperplate, and other pointed pen scripts. (The very smooth finish makes for easier upstrokes, without catching and splattering.) Staple-bound at the top. Sheets are micro-perforated for easy and clean removal. "Soft Touch" cover is scored so it will fold back neatly. Inside the back cover is thick cardboard to provide support for writing without a hard surface. 90g (90gsm) is similar to 24lb bond (60lb text).

Available blank (black cover) or lined (orange cover) in 8.25" x 11.75 ".

B3304. American Cursive Handwriting (Student) / Sull
American Cursive Handwriting (Student Edition) by Michael Sull with Debra Sull. 2011. 320pp. 8.5"x11".

3-hole punched and shrink-wrapped for shipping. Place the book in your own binder (not supplied) and remove the pages as necessary. Practice on a single sheet on a desk or table, and return the completed sheet to the binder to keep track of your progress.


A thorough presentation of traditional penmanship for grade 5 through adult. Includes historical background, detailed information on writing position, writing zone, paper movement and recommended sizes of writing. The single volume contains both a teacher guide and the student workbook/copybook. The thorough lesson plan guides the user in a straightforward, step-by-step progression to improve handwriting skill.

The instructional program consists of:
Traditional Movement and Cross-Drill exercise sheets with instructions for daily use.
Over 150 copybook sheets in the time-tested method of practice, boasting more than 375 model lines of writing and 1,575 blank lines for student use.
Detailed pages on letter and number construction.
Specially designed practice sheets featuring a progressive format of guidelines to focus the student's efforts from basic letter size, height, spacing and slant to spontaneous writing upon a single baseline.

Additional chapters feature selected quotations, poems, excerpts from literature and Scripture for further practice; comments on the tools of writing, with special information on the use of fountain pens; the techniques of how to write a personal letter; ten important rules of handwriting; and blank guidesheets in all formats presented in the book.


American Cursive Handwriting is similar to Business Writing or the basic, unstressed forms of Spencerian Script. Michael Sull is author of instructional books and DVD's on Spencerian Script and Off Hand Flourishing.
