Peter Thornton recommends these books, though they are not specific to these classes.
B2982. John Stevens SCRIBE: Artist of the Written Word. $49.95
"It is one of the most important additions to the calligrapher's library, and no other book I know covers Italic so comprehensibly, so dynamically, or so eloquently. I am on my second reading, and the book is still a compelling read."– Peter

B3940. Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell. Paper $16.99
"It charts people, in many walks of life, who have succeeded and the common factors that can produce success, providing insights that are applicable to us as calligraphers/artists of all levels. The book is fascinating, absorbing, and written with great clarity."

I08. Higgins Eternal Ink
I08. Higgins Eternal Ink.

A non-waterproof, carbon black ink for dip pens. Our most popular ink for classes. Recommended for copperplate (add a few drops of gum arabic). Perhaps the best ink for calligraphy for a beginner; it will cause the beginner the fewest problems. This ink will bleed more readily than other inks. If bleeding is a problem, try Sumi Inks. 2.5 oz.

Quantity discounts start at 6 & 12.

"For broad-pen writing, I add gouache to Higgins Eternal. Gouache gives Eternal some needed body. It doesn't necessarily have to be black gouache. Indigo or a dark red add an interesting hue to the result. In a quarter ounce of Eternal, I add about a 3/8-inch bead of gouache from a tube. Eternal doesn't give me the hairlines I want in pointed pen work, so for that I much prefer iron gall or walnut ink". - Bob Hurford




Your Price $5.75

I53-2.5. Walnut Drawing Ink
I53-2.5. Tom Norton's Walnut (Color) Ink
