I'd love that! Austria used Kurrent too, so I'd be curious! :)

I think I got all of your cards, thank you so much!

Yikes! I sure hope not! I'm so sorry you have to go through this!

Open Flourish | General Discussion / Pinky pain from resting hand on it
« on: January 13, 2018, 12:59:19 PM »
Hi everyone!

So I guess cramps and pains are common, but does anyone know the pain in your pinky finger that comes from writing a long time and resting your hand on it?
Do you have any suggestions on how to avoid this/get rid of it?

Hi everyone,

I've spoken to several people on the list with various birthdays and it seems like the exchange is pretty much dead.
New people sign up regularly and there's over 100 people signed up but people aren't sending anything anymore. ;)

So I would ask you kindly to close this thread, @Erica McPhee

The Library / Re: Mira Calligraphiae Monumenta

I love this book. I actually did a fair amount of research on the calligrapher and it appears that he was active in Vienna, where I now live. His other book rests in a vault here and is inaccessible to the public but you can acquire a digital copy for a mere 260 ... gulp.

@Steve_H Okay, then let me rephrase: Is the instruction in the online videos good?

Oooooh I love them sooo much!! Thank you!

Any more info on the DVD? I'd like to give Italic a better go but the previews look so esoteric. Is the instruction good?

They are gigantic! I suppose you could use them for large-scale projects ... by putting them into a tree trunk or something. :o

Hi Andy!
For beginners, I think that regular nibs would be better than vintage ones. If they like them they can easily buy them again, unlike the vintage ones. Regarding your questions:
1) I'd probably give one EF, one F and one M and one very flexible one as well as one not flexible at all. As a beginner it's hard to differentiate between different nibs and I think that's about the extent of what they can understand
2) Add up the sum of the items and your hourly fee for teaching
3) Paper towels :D
