A Beginning Letterer’s Christmas Wishlist

I’m going to make a little assumption about you based upon your finding of this blog post. You’ve recently picked up the art of calligraphy. I’m excited for you, I truly am. Calligraphy has been one of the most relaxing parts of my life over the last couple of years. I recommend it to anyone who has the patience to rewrite the same letter over fifty times in order to master it.

Since you’re just getting started, though, you may be overwhelmed when your mom so kindly asks for your Christmas wish list. I thought I would help you out a little bit. Here are some items that I would recommend for someone who is just getting started in calligraphy.
