My logic: you can write on any type of paper with a regular pen, so why couldn’t you write on any paper with a dip pen, too? After several months of watching my ink feather and having my nib catch on paper fibers, it clicked for me that paper makes all the difference. After years of writing, painting, and professionally printing my creations, I’m sharing this guide to help you navigate the world of paper.

One of those concepts is to be true to yourself, thus the line featured in today’s calligraphy quote worksheet.
