Calligraphy is an art form that almost anyone can enjoy. If you’ve said "I don’t have a artistic bone in my body", you may be surprised that with the right pen in hand, you could have a hidden artistic flare you never knew you had. Recently here at Writer’s Bloc I was able to "play" with some great Calligraphy Pens.
The Pilot Parallel Calligraphy Pen 3.8mm has a wide nib that makes crisp, large letters. This pen, as well as the 6.0mm nib Parallel Pen, work well for projects that call for large lettering. Great for personalizing blank cards or to make signs that need to be easy to read. For smaller lettering, the Parallel Pen is also available in 2.4mm and 1.5mm nib sizes. This pen has a special gradation function which allows you to change your writing gradually from one color to another color.
The Pelikan Script Calligraphy Pen with the 1.5mm nib was my favorite because the nib size made what I thought was the just right stroke width for calligraphy writing in my personal letters and cards. The angle and nib are given to making clean calligraphy letters. A must have for the calligraphy writers among us. You can get the Pelikan Script Calligraphy Pen with 1.0mm and 2.0mm nibs as well.
The LAMY Joy Calligraphy Pen with the 1.1mm nib makes a finer line that is very appealing to those of us who write a little smaller. A great Pen!! It glides smoothly across the paper, almost making writing effortless. The LAMY Joy Calligraphy Pen makes beautiful writing fun. This pen also comes in 1.5mm and 1.9mm nib sizes.
All three of these Calligraphy Pens are well made fountain pens. They feel great in the hand and flow smoothly and evenly. They truly make for unique and stylish lettering that gives individuality to any writing endeavor.
Discover the artist in you and have fun doing it!!
