Beautiful as always Ken. I have a definite appreciation for Italic in a different way than pointed pen. But still appreciate itís beauty and how the strokes form such lovely letters.  :)

Ken, thanks for the explanation with each variation.  I prefer a much more flourished italic.

I now have a set of Pilot Parallel pens and here to see how it all fits. 

Oh, I am armed with two books:  One is by Mrs. Winters called Calligraphy for Kids.

Going to find out if italic is good for everyday writing and a decent speed (faster than copperplate).  :)

Hmmm "manuscript pen".  Gotta look that up.  Never heard that expression.  I have those Pilot pens.   ;D

ETA:  Ooohhh, it looks like a regular old fountain pen to me; albeit with a broad nib.  Learn something everyday.

Go to www.calligraphy.co.uk for The Manuscript Pen Company.
I have a full set of Manuscript pens with the range of edged nibs.
Inexpensive and great value for money.
