B2830. Finding the Flow/Jonas
Finding the Flow: A Calligraphic Journey by Gina Jonas. 2006. 85pp. 8.5" x 11". Spiral bound. Paper

A new approach to calligraphy for all levels, which acquaints the scribe with the essential but largely unexplored dynamics of stroke technique. Through stroke exercises with pencil and edged pen you explore vital movement and sensitive touch. You discover how shoulder, arm, fingers, and pen combine with alternating of pressure. The exercises lead to an intimate understanding of the edged pen: a foundation for formal alphabet study, creative alphabet design, and artistic self-expression! Begin
your calligraphy practice before starting formal alphabet study by warming up, sensitizing, and integrating mind and body. Full of illustrations and diagrams.

PS90. Arches Cover Paper Black
Arches Cover Black
22"x30". 250gsm. Mouldmade in France. 100% cotton. pH neutral, lightly sized, textured surface. 4 deckles. Black.

Laurie Doctor and others recommend this sheet for book and portfolio covers. It folds without cracking. Judy Melvin likes it for her calligraphic painting - however this is NOT the Arches Black that will bleach correctly. When bleach is applied to this new version the paper turns pink (salmon). Grain direction is parallel to underlined dimension.

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)
