Calligraphy is an expression of art through the written word. Different lettering styles are achieved with pen and nib and applied using ink. The nibs vary in shape and width allowing the calligrapher to achieve a style of writing appropriate to the task. In addition to the types of pen holders and nibs, there are a choice of ink filled fibre-tipped pens also available.
Included in the choice of calligraphy papers available from George Weil are Pergamenata and Italic Parchment plus a selection of other smooth surfaced papers, tracing paper and blotting paper. The inks include Winsor & Newton Indian Ink plus a choice of Winsor & Newton coloured drawing inks and and Daler Rowney Calli Calligraphy inks in 6 colours.
Use calligraphy to create the precise lettering used to decorate manuscripts, certificates, books, wedding invitations, sign posts and art.
Chinese calligraphy is another lettering technique which is achieved using a fine hair brush and inksticks, although liquid ink can also be used. The Pentel Fude Brush pens provide a synthetic, modern method of creating oriental calligraphy. You can create fine to broad lines with a single stroke. The durable synthetic bristles retain their shape and do not fray and the permanent black pigment 1ink is fade and water resistant.
