Wow Erica, these LED boards are so awesome. Do they simulate the thick and thins required. I wonder if they are sold on India on Amazon.

Hi Bianca ....You guys at the flourish forum are doing an awesome job keeping everything so alive and really flourishing. Yes usually my trips onboard are about 4-5 months duration. I will try taking a dip pen, nibs and some ink along to give it a try.
Hi happy to be part of this forum. :)

In fact Erica I was contemplating on the idea of taking my materials out to the high seas when I get back onboard but I have a feeling that the vibration experienced while the ship is moving might not be conducive to this careful study. But since I have started I don't feel like being out of touch with it. Maybe I could do drills with a pencil which aren't that demanding.
You could suggest what I should take with me when getting back onboard in September. I really want to continue my study even if it is just for an hour a day out at sea. Your suggestions are welcome.

Hello Everyone!!! This is my first post and I am so excited. Firstly I would like to thank Erica for helping me with the registration process as I wasn't able to complete that on my own. So thank you so much Erica!!!!  :) :)
I'm Warren and am professionally a merchant naval officer. I have always been interested in handwriting from an early age. I started of with D'nealian script which was taught in schools here in India. So being interested in handwriting obviously got me interested in calligraphy and in particular Copperplate because of its sheer beauty. After searching online I noticed that Copperplate (done with a burin) wasn't actually a written form and Engrosser's was the written script. I was aware of IAMPETH and their collection of rare books and I saw the Zanerian manual which is like the Bible for this script. So as a beginner I have just made baby steps in this script.
Hoping to learn a lot from people in this forum and I will share my progress as well.

Best Regards
