H130. Blue Comfort Grip Adjusted Holder
H130. Blue Comfort Grip Adjusted Holder.

This is a comfort-grip, blue plastic, hourglass holder with an oblique brass flange. 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).

N161. Atome 1423 Nib
N161. Conte Atome 1423 Nib

Unlike most very small nibs, such as the crowquills, this one is fairly stiff. While used primarily for drawing, this nib also works well for very small script. The hairlines and crosshatching are extremely fine. Benoit Furet's favorite nib for filigree.

Made in France. Price break at 12.

N162. Hink and Wells 2067EF Nib
N162. Hink & Wells 2067EF Nib

This pointed nib, released in 2019, has medium flex. Our testers found the nib has a large ink capacity and an incredibly smooth tip. Suitable for Copperplate or Spencerian, the nib also works well for other pointed pen styles (such as Modern Calligraphy). Similar to the Brause 66EF, but much stiffer. The large ink capacity allows you to write fairly large.

N163. Perry's Viaduct 120EF Nib
N163. Perry & Co. Viaduct 120EF Nib

This nib, released in 2019, has an exceptionally fine tip, allowing for exquisite hairlines and great cross hatching. One nib tester found that he could draw finer lines with this nib than he could with a Micron 005 pen.

Medium flex. Best on smooth papers.

Price break at quantity 12.

N118-10PK. Zebra G Nibs -- 10 pack
Zebra Nibs -- Pack of 10

Zebra G 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. 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.
Quantaty discounts available at 2,3, and 5 packs.

B4227. Colour & Curves / Young
B4227. Colour and Curves: A Pilot Parallel Pen Workbook by Alice Young. 2018. 76pp. 8.5"x11" Paper.

Thoroughly covers the Parallel Pen and its use, including 16 pages of ink options, from Pilot cartridges to metallic inks. You learn how the pen writes through fun, non-letterform exercises. The last section is Blackletter instruction, with exemplars and exercise pages. Even if this hand is not your thing, this beautiful book belongs in your studio if you own a Parallel Pen. Full-color throughout.

The book includes a bonus pack of single sheets of the 16 exercise pages from the book!

Among a range of other papers, Gilbert Bond is highly recommended on page 48 of this book. Unfortunately, manufacturers change papers without notice. While this paper is still great with most all inks, it is not really suitable for the various colors of Pilot Parallel Pen cartridge ink. You should explore the other papers mentioned on that page of the book. The JNB Graph Pads (P21 & P22) also work well with Parallel Pen ink as does the JNB practice pads (P25 & P22). The bonus pack of single sheets is printed on the paper used in these pads.

B2982. John Stevens SCRIBE: Artist of the Written Word
B2982. John Stevens SCRIBE: Artist of the Written Word. 2013. 264pp. 8.75"x11.25". Hardcover

Free Media Mail Shipping (USA only). Media Mail takes 2 to 3 weeks depending upon location.

A profusely illustrated, full-color retrospective of John Stevens' work with letterforms. Includes calligraphy and lettering -- artworks, personal work, experimental work, commissioned work -- as well as graphic work and type design. His body of work spans paper to stone, books to walls, hand lettering to type and the digital realm.

In the text, John presents his approach to a design or work and his thoughts on letterforms, and continues with a discussion on tools, teaching, design and writing in general. Using his body of work as example, he makes the case that divisions between fine arts and graphic arts are mostly irrelevant.


Please visit the Scribe page on www.JohnNealBooks.com for a video by John Stevens on the book, a sample spread, and a book review by the Carolina Lettering Arts Society here: www.johnnealbooks.com/Scribe

Free Media Mail Shipping to USA addresses. If you need the book sooner, there will be a $3 rush ship charge added to your order. Media Mail generally takes upwards of 2 weeks or more to be delivered.
