Hello from Italy!
« on: January 16, 2018, 12:32:19 PM »
Hello everyone, I知 Mara and I知 from Italy.

I知 43 years old and I work in a notary office where I can express my fondness for handwriting having to fill all these notarial registries!

I started practicing Copperplate calligraphy only a few weeks ago so I知 focused on basic strokes at the moment but I知 totally in love already.
I practice with a Brause 361 nib and Diamine Syrah Ink.

Hope to learn and share!

P.s. please excuse my horrible English, corrections welcome  :)
