If you enjoy using a pen to write on paper, this talk will inspire. It is Jake Weidmann at TED-x on the topic, Why write? Penmanship for the 21st Century
“What is the future of writing in the digital age, and why does it matter? In this surprising talk, Master Penman Jake Weidmann explores the connections between the pen and how we learn, think, and carry our cultural heritage at a time when the very act of writing is being dropped from school curricula across the country.”
I’ve done calligraphy but I’ve never used an oblique pen holder. Is it primarily for Spencerian or Copperplate script? It would seem so. He differentiates between pointed pen or script calligraphy and broad-edge calligraphy. I’ve done the latter.
His sources of kit include John Neal, whose catalog I’ve received for decades. However, I see a new source: Paper & Ink Arts. Oh, my!
