Greetings - I use to enjoy looking at the Instagram photos provided by many members here on the Forum. It was what motivated me to pursue learning, and continued to inspire me by seeing how different folks created their script work. Many also provide gentle instructions on their Instagram pages which is very helpful to those of us who cannot afford in person or online courses.

Alas, I have not been able to enjoy this lately and I just found an article that explained that Instagram will no longer provide unlimited viewing of 'public' accounts:

I am not a fan of many social media and do not have, nor plan to create, an Instagram account. This is a personal choice and I know I will miss seeing all this work and instruction. That is okay, I still have my Flourish Forum!

I am not complaining; such is life. I am just making an observation and providing information in case anyone else has experienced this as well.


Tools & Supplies / Calligraphy Ruler
« on: April 12, 2019, 01:00:33 PM »

I have searched, without success, to see if any US vendors carry Aquino da Silva's Calligraphy Ruler. Does anyone know if a US vendor carries this that I may have overlooked?

Thank you,

The Library / George Bickham: Round Text Copybook
« on: July 30, 2017, 02:45:04 PM »

While searching Copperplate articles on Google Books I came across a copy of George Bickhams "Round-Text A New Copy-Book".

It is very short, but contains some nice examples.

Here is the link:


Zentangles / Zentangle - Completed lesson one
« on: April 09, 2017, 11:36:10 AM »

Thanks for starting the Zentangle topic Erica. I saved up and got the Zentangle Primer and just completed lesson one. This one is not on a tile. I have started a 'tangle' notebook to keep my practice work in for future reference (kind of like my practice sheets from working Erica's Pointed Pen lessons).

This one has the Crescent Moon, Printemps, Hollibaugh and Florz. I was not brave enough to use my new straight dip pen for this and instead used a Pentel Sharpie fine point pen (the kind that does not bleed through paper).


Introductions / Hello from Washington State

Gentle greetings

I am a recently laid off, left handed, 61 year old widow who now has time to resume my artistic side. I had an opportunity to experience calligraphy in a high school art class, but unfortunately had an older teacher who still thought left handers should have been encouraged to use their right hand when learning cursive.

I loved lettering but it was a challenge without positive encouragement. I was researching Copperplate when I found a link to The Flourish Forum. Reading through various topics I was finding this to be a positive and helpful environment where I could feel safe in pursuing lettering again and not be hampered for being left handed.

I look forward to interacting with everyone and hope I can contribute in some way.
