Hello Toni,

Broad pen was my first tool when I started in calligraphy too. Welcome to the forum!

Yes, Uncial is on my resolution list too.  Have you see the book by Marc Drogin, Medieval Calligraphy?  It is very interesting on the history of the development of many styles of lettering in the middle ages, and the book distinguishes several versions of Uncial.  Plus, in addition to the history, it has good practical sections on how to write the different medieval scripts.  I especially like the majestic Insular Majuscule, found, for one place, in the Book of Kells.

Oh wow. thanks for the recommendation. I have to check that book out. :)

I am diligently studying Engrosser's script the first half of the year and hope to do some broad pen the latter half. Brush up my Italic and hopefully some Blackletter.  :)

I would love to do some brush but I don't want to dip my pen in too many inks.  ;D

Italic is on my resolution this year too and Uncial. I definitely want to learn Uncial as well. :)

I am hoping to find time to get more familiar with the broad pen

Oh the broad pen, I have to rekindle my relationship with it too.

Happy New Year everyone!! I still have a holiday hangover and while I'm still in denial over being in the office already, I'm currently mulling over my 2017 Calligraphy Resolutions. How about you guys? Do you have any for this year?  :)
