B4286. Modern Calligraphy / Edmonds
B4286. Modern Calligraphy by Lucy Edmonds of Quill London. 2018. 168pp. 7.25"x7.5". Paper.

Unlock your creativity with this inspiring guide to modern calligraphy. Loosely based on the 300-year-old Copperplate style, modern calligraphy offers an accessible form of hand lettering - one that allows practitioners to develop their own styles. Even if you think you're not creative or that your handwriting is poor, with this beautifully illustrated guide as well as regular practice, you'll be on your way to an exciting and satisfying new form of self-expression.
Author Lucy Edmonds is the founder of a stationery boutique, Quill London, where she has conducted calligraphy workshops for thousands of students from all over the world. Her step-by-step approach will show you an abundance of tips, tricks, and techniques for beginners, starting with advice on materials and basic exercises and advancing to uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, symbols, and brush calligraphy. Plenty of practice pages with dotted lines will help you perfect your technique. Plus, a wealth of practical ideas includes pointers for making your own inks and adding an elegant personal touch to envelope-addressing, invitations, dinner party menus, and gift tags.

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".

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.
