When I decided to learn calligraphy, I bought a kit at a big box art store with nibs that were too flexible for my skill level (but how was I to know that?) and a plastic-flanged oblique pen. The lack of success that I had with that kit very nearly discouraged me from forging ahead! Just in the nick of time, I tried out a Nikko G nib, a brass-flanged oblique pen, nice quality paper, and sumi ink. The difference was remarkable!
Turns out, Tona Bell, owner of The Paper Seahorse, had a similar experience. It’s amazing what a difference the right tools can make, so we decided to collaborate on a high-quality, thoughtfully compiled calligraphy kit that doubles as a visual treat! The kit is available at The Paper Seahorse in two versions: the Ultimate Kit and the Essential Kit.
This month, Tona and I are pleased to be giving away one Ultimate Kit ($75 value + shipping)! You can enter using the Rafflecopter Widget below.
