Midweek Mojo – Calligraphy for Everyone

Midweek Mojo
Calligraphy for Everyone

Learning calligraphy can seem daunting, but with the right resources and supplies,
it’s a fun and rewarding skill that anyone can master.

Midweek Mojo - Illuminated Manuscript

Midweek Mojo – Illuminated Manuscript

This week we get help from the Appleton Career Academy to showcase some of our favorite calligraphy supplies. As part of a cross-curricular assignment, students produced illuminated pages analyzing the monarchs that influenced Shakespeare’s Macbeth using supplies donated by Anderson Pens.

  • Using Ziller dip pen ink makes for an easier writing experience. The thicker ink is pigmented, waterproof and lightfast – just don’t put it in your fountain pen. Available in 10 different colors.
  • J.Herbin Authentique is a rich black ink perfect for practicing your alphabet or writing a letter.
  • Looking for a thicker nib holder? The E+M Artist nib holder has a comfortable triangular grip and a stainless steel section.

  • Practice your calligraphy wherever you are with Pilot Parallel pens. You can use Pilot cartridges or a Pilot converter so you can use bottled ink.

  • An offset nib holder will get you writing with the right angle. The Ziller grey oblique nib holder is available with 4 different nib options.
  • One of our favorite resources for learning calligraphy is Tamblyn’s Home Instruction in Penmanship. If you’re interested in learning other fonts, be sure to check out our large selection of how-to books.

  • Perhaps you’ll be inspired to write your own illuminated page on Shakespeare using the Leonardt Shakespeare nib.
  • With an ergonomic section, the Brause nib holder lets you get a grip on your writing.
