Calligraphy is often considered more of an art form than simple letters on a page. It is usually best for formal invitations, official documents, and even works of art. If you are interested in learning calligraphy, you should know the basic tools you will need, as well as techniques that are most often used. I wrote this post to set some young student on a career path that may be unusual, but pretty interesting!
The essential tool for this art form is the pen, and there are many options when it comes to this. You can use a cartridge pen, which lets you change out nibs. Wider nibs are creating larger letters, whereas narrower nibs will be resulting in smaller print. With a cartridge pen, you can also switch out the ink, allowing you to change colors whenever you want. You can also choose a dip pen, which is exactly what it sounds like — a pen that you dip into a small pot of ink when you want to write.
