Calligraphy supplies!

I went out and bought a pile of calligraphy supplies, using several of the "Beginning Scribal" websites out there to make my list. I should have gone to Office Depot first and then to the pricier arts store, but oh well. I think I've gotten everything except the Ames Lettering Guide, which I see is available on

All I could find for nibs were Speedballs. At least one website recommended against them, and I've seen at least one displaying a scroll done with Speedball C nibs, the very ones I bought. Oh well... cross fingers and hope for the best. I'll just know to try to find another nib if I find the Speedballs hopelessly difficult to work with.

Now I just have to find some time to play with them!
