Recently, I began my interest on Calligraphy. I’ve always been fascinated with beautiful penmanship since the time I first learned how to write in cursive. Swirls and strokes, seem to be dancing gracefully across the paper. Script is my favorite style of handwriting.
So I purchased my tools on a local craft store and some online.


For pens or penbrushes there are famous brands like Zig (Kuretake), Copic, Tombow, Pentel and my favorite ones are mostly Japanese such as Pilot & Kuretake. Japan is renowned with their excellent craftsmanship and their calligraphy tools are the best for me.


I also collect journals and notebooks, a favorite of mine is from Moleskin their limited edition Le Petite Prince journal – so cute ๐Ÿ™‚

With pointed pens, I still have a few, Japanese brand preppypens which is very affordable, then I got Noodler’s fountain pens with flexi nibs as a gift last Valentine. Other brands I got are Pelikano and Parker.

And with nibs and holders, I have to familiarize myself though. Sometimes I don’t like the idea of attaching nibs then dipping it into the ink every now and then. Arduous task, relaxing for some, for me maybe someday ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s some photos of my modern calligraphy journey…





And so I continue to practice…. will post more pics next time.

Hope you like it. Thanks for reading.
