H132. Crystalline Oblique Holders
H132. Crystalline Oblique Holders

Turned from colored resin, these beautiful cylindrical holders look like colored marble. Fitted for a G nib, the flange can easily be modified to hold other nibs. The brass oblique flange is tilted to decrease the angle of the nib to the paper, making your upstrokes less likely to catch on the paper. Approx. 3/8" dia., 7.75" long, (1cm dia., 15cm long).

Choose color: Aqua, Honey or Lavender.

P104. Rhodia R Pads
P104. Rhodia R Pad.

70 sheets of premium 90g Ivory paper, thicker than regular Rhodia paper, but with the same super-smooth finish that is prized by scribes for Spencerian, Copperplate, and other pointed pen scripts. (The very smooth finish makes for easier upstrokes, without catching and splattering.) Staple-bound at the top. Sheets are micro-perforated for easy and clean removal. "Soft Touch" cover is scored so it will fold back neatly. Inside the back cover is thick cardboard to provide support for writing without a hard surface. 90g (90gsm) is similar to 24lb bond (60lb text).

Available blank (black cover) or lined (orange cover) in 8.25" x 11.75 ".

P102. Modern Calligraphy Practice Pad
P102. WWC Modern Calligraphy Practice Pad. 8.5"x11", spiral-bound (at top).

Provides instruction for the informal style of Copperplate known as Modern Calligraphy, using a copybook-style format that stresses letterform variation. Each copybook-style page comes with a tracing vellum overlay for you to write on, preserving the original pages. There are two different practice pads, which are produced by Written Word Calligraphy and Design.

Choose Lowercase or Uppercase.

Click the photo to see sample pages of the pads.

Lowercase Alphabet: The two-page intro covers penholders, nibs, ink, paper, and their use. Then, after a page of basic stroke practice, comes the copybook section with one page for each letter. Each lowercase letter is presented with 10 variations and two lines of joined-letter practice. Each line has guide- and slant-lines printed in gray; the model letter is printed in black and is followed by several examples in gray to trace over; then there is space for you to make the letters on your own. Next comes connecting-letters practice, word practice, and phrase practice.

Uppercase Alphabet: The uppercase pad has the same two-page introduction and similar letter-by-letter copybook instruction, with 10 practice lines per letter; the last four lines add a lowercase letter. Next come three pages of number practice, word practice (using first names), and phrase practice.
