Hello dear friends !

I've already shared this in another post, but I think this info deserves its own post too ;)

I just launched a new website where I'm sharing lots of information on traditional pointed pen styles, it's www.pennavolans.com

There, you'll find a huge list of copybooks and writing manuals published between 1525 and 1930, organized by century and country (it's in the bibliography section).

I also started a blog where I'm sharing the things I found out about the history of copperplate, a couple of posts are already up and I've got a few ideas for future posts... Tell me if you've got questions about this subject, maybe I can answer them in future posts ;)

Finally, I also started building a whole collection of letter variations found in several copybooks that I hope will help other calligraphers in their own practice. Right now, only the collection of A variations is available, but the other letters will soon follow.

Selling these "catalogues" will allow me to devote more time to the website and to create more free resources for the community.

Thank you for your support !
