Letter Pixels / Scanner for calligraphy
« on: January 05, 2017, 02:17:48 AM »
Before my Christmas budget sidetracked, I was seriously looking at getting a scanner. My first use would be to digitize a whole lot of photographs. But I also want to use it for calligraphy. Would the Epson V600 be satisfactory for the latter? I don't expect to be doing anything giant size.

Just when I thought I could spend lots of summer hours practicing calligraphy, my landlord decided 25 years of being a good tenant wasn't worth spit when he could get three more Benjamins a month from a new tenant. So I am scurrying around packing, selling, tossing and looking for a new apartment. I've got a large desk that no longer makes sense  so I'm trying to figure what might work in the corner of a smaller desk. The folding easels look good, but I don't know enough to make a smart choice. Much of my day is computer related, but I want to be able to practice without needing a separate table.

Any ideas?

Just a thank you and hello:
I'm a longtime pen enthusiast who is learning calligraphy out of a struggle with what chemotherapy did to me. I love pens and writing by hand, but chemo damage to my nervous system wreaked havoc with writing(and a few other things). I don't intend to go quietly. I would have settled for some dabbling with fountain pens, but I been smitten with learning to use pointed pen and like the challenge of doing things that are difficult. Other challenges include being left-handed and the curse of failing handwriting class.

So far, it's very gratifying as I learn and my penmanship is much better.
