M56. Zig Calligraphy Pen Oblique Cut
For Lefthanders and Arabic. 1mm, 2mm, 3mm.

These new water-based, left-handed markers from Zig come in three sizes including the very useful 1mm. Kate Wolff finds the felt tip to be harder/stiffer than other markers which means they give crisper letters and won't mush up as fast as some markers. Available in 3 colors and 3 sizes.

"I have been using the ZIG markers which you sent and they work very well indeed! I even passed them around in my calligraphy courses to get the reaction from students, both beginners and experienced old hands at in the matter. All found them terrific." - Kate Wolff

In this feast for the eyes, Massoudy's elegant calligraphy depicts the four seasons of the garden.

The proverb or quotation that inspired each artwork is handwritten in Arabic by Massoudy alongside the English texts on the facing page. Hassan Massoudy was born in Najaf, Iraq. He moved to France in 1969.
