I've been using Hunt 101 with Sumi ink for my engrosser's script. I also tried the Zebra G but found it too stiff and the Brause Rose but couldn't  control it. What nib do you guys favor for engrosser's  and possibly  Spencerian?

This is my writing corner. I've mixed a modern office chair for comfort with a 1900's drop-front writing desk, and a poster to remind me to never let cursive disappear.

I'd love to see anyone else's creative space!

I have a question for everyone. I want to write my checks with my oblique pen. I tried to sign one and the ink bled. Do I need different ink? I tried Higgins and I tried Sumi. Do I need to have "special" checks made?

Can anyone please let me know what areas of pointed pen can I work on to improve my skills. I use Higgins ink and a Nikko G nib in an oblique holder. I have been teaching myself for about three years using the zanarian manual, IAMPETH lessons, Instagram, videos by Paul Antonio (I got his book too). I think I'm ready to have some personal lessons or work with someone experienced to help me grow to the next level. Anyone up to the challenge?

I was bored, so I drew and quickly lettered to see what combining a cartoon with copperplate would look like.

Open Flourish | General Discussion / Enlarged engrosser's hand

I've been learning engrosser's hand with a strait and oblique pen with the xheight getting no bigger than 3/8 if an inch. What tool would I use to write a poster sized letter by hand. I want it to be hand lettered, not enlarged digitally or photocopied. Any thoughts?

I just want to say thank you for letting me get to know you! Although I enjoy digital typography, it pales in comparison to the enjoyment I've been experiencing by self teaching myself the history of handwriting, starting with Sumerian and paleo-Hebrew, all the way through the area I became most interested in, English roundhand and Engravers/engrosser's hand. There appears to be a rich history of handwriting in the cities near me and I am excited to find others still interested in this as I am. I still research online which is how I found the Flourish Forum. Please be patient with me as I learn to navigate this website from my phone, and I can't wait to see others progress! Thanks.
