Speedball A Nibs Set of 6

Item Code: N149-S6


N149-S6. Speedball A Nibs, Set of 6

Like the Speedball B pens, these have a flat writing tip at the end of the nib. With these A-nibs, the flat tip is squared (the B-nibs have a round tip). Use these A-nibs for square-corner letter styles, like Neuland or block sans-serif.

Set contains one each: A0, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5.

Speedball A nibs
Feb 14, 2022  |  By Carla
I love the A nib. It has its own character and it is wonderful to play with. It shares the ability to hold a lot of ink with all the Speedball nibs.
Owner Response: Randall Hasson has written a two books about the Speedball A, B, and D nibs--the bent nibs: B4376. Contemporary Techniques for Bent Nib Pens and B4375. A Study in Early 20th Century Commercial Lettering Styles. Here is a link: https://www.johnnealbooks.com/category/s?keyword=hasson
