Spencerian Lettering


This is the supply list for Harvest Crittenden's online class "Spencerian Lettering".
Harvest's Website: http://www.acornarts.org/
We are offering a special kit with all the items listed below:HC3
Students will need:
Oblique pen holder or straight pen holder (if left handed)(H114, H96)
Nikko G or Zebra G nibs (N113, N118) These are recommended for beginners. More advanced students may prefer to use a more flexible nib.
Iron Gall Ink, McCaffery's Black or Old World (I37, I116)
Mechanical pencil (I use .05 but use whatever is handy) (PL14, PL15)
Kneaded Eraser (E09)
C-Thru 12" grid ruler (S798)
Viva paper towels, smooth NOT textured (S817)
Translucent Layout Paper - Borden & Riley, Canson, or Claire Fontane, or another good quality translucent paper(P09-100, P36, P32)


N113. Nikko G Nib
N113. Nikko G Nib.

These nibs from Japan are hand cut, extremely smooth, and long-lasting. They are chrome plated and have a medium flex. Great for Spencerian. Smooth writing with no burrs or scratchiness. Highly recommended by Michael Sull.

N118. Zebra G Nib
Zebra Nib.

Similar to the popular Nikko G Nib, but a little more flexible and sharper. It will produce a finer hairline than the Nikko. Same sturdy quality. If you are using the Nikko G but would like to be able to write with thinner hairlines and thicker strokes, give these nibs a try. Michael Sull still recommends the Nikko G nib as best for learning Spencerian, but this Zebra G Nib is a good one, too, for Spencerian.

Which holders will work with this nib?

Just wanted to let you know about my experience with the ZEBRA G nibs: Santa was very generous to me this year and I got a dozen. I pulled the nibs out to play with this weekend and I have found my new love. I used the nib with Walnut Ink and the hairlines, so thin, so smooth, with a light touch and the nib skated effortlessly across the page. I really enjoyed working with this nib. If you haven't had the chance to try this nib out yet, it's worth the couple of bucks. I haven't tried any of my other inks, but I will be doing that this week. So far, I'm loving these nibs. Don't know if they are workhorses yet - I only had them a few days. - Ilovepenmanship

I love them too. The nibs are great with the iron gall inks because the ink does not eat the nib as fast. Great hairlines and just enough flex for shades. Much thanks to John Neal for these!!! - Nan DeLuca

S798. Westcott 12 inch GRAPH Ruler
Westcott 8ths Graph Beveled Transparent Ruler 2"x12". No. b-70

These handy 8ths graph rulers are transparent for visibility and beveled to accommodate work with ink. Edges are calibrated to 16ths to the inch with a zero-centering scale down the middle. Laminated for durability.

Now labeled Westcott instead of C-Thru.

E09. Kneaded Rubber Eraser
Kneaded Rubber Eraser.

Used to erase pencil (graphite). Cherryl Moote suggested it for removing the white lines from a white lead mechanical pencil.



Your Price

H114. Turned Wood Oblique Holder
H114. Turned Wood Oblique Holder.

The Ornamental Wood Holder has intricate ornamental turnings inspired by those on the Century Penholders. Color of holder varies.
The Tapered Wood Holder has a finely tapered classic shape. All Tapered are the same dark brown/black color.
The Ebony Wood Holder has the same design as the Ornamental version but is made out of a very dark (almost black) African hardwood. This version is slightly heavier than the other versions.
The Zanerian Wood Holder is made using the same wood (and colors) as the Ornamental version. The Zanerian design is a very slim shaft with a small finial on the tip.

Each style has the standard brass flange (fitted for the Nikko G nib) and overall length of 6.5-6.75".

Quantity discount for 12 or more.




Options:
Your Price $19.95

H96. Black Comfort Grip Adjusted Holder
This comfort-grip, black plastic, "hourglass" holder with an oblique brass flange is a great improvement over the Speedball Oblique Holder. The flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your upstrokes less likely to catch on the paper and the flange is pre-adjusted for our most popular nibs.

This holder does not include a nib.

Choose nib adjustment: 66EF (Brause 66EF), 303 (Gillott 303), PRIN (Principal EF), NIKK (Nikko G).

S817. Viva Paper towels, 12 sheets

Recommended by Harvest Crittenden for wiping pen points and brushes:
"I've used them exclusively for at least 8 years. They don't leave fuzz on the pen points or brushes."

We have made these available for those outside the USA or in areas where this brand is not readily available. This is a small pack of 12 sheets for easy shipping.

His recommendation is echoed by other scribes and penmen: "Absolutely wonderful." "A great pad." It is worth the price.

Choose 9x12, 11x14, or 14x17 inches.
