Victoriana collectors wooden box set - contains a complete set of traditional round hand dip nibs.

The art of calligraphy is as old as writing itself and originates from man's natural instinct to communicate. The Manuscript art of writing sets have been designed to bring traditional craft skills into the modern world. The perfect way to communicate. An exquisite set with a dip pen and complete set of bronze Round Hand nibs in a beautifully crafted wooden gift box. This is a classic gift for a calligrapher. The set includes a striking gold and black marbled wooden dip penholder. The bronze finish Round Hand nibs have a square cut point used to produce Italic, Gothic and Uncial writing styles. These calligraphic styles are written with the pen held at an angle between 40- 45 degrees. Letters should be written with the minimum number of pen lifts, most can be written with a single stroke. The set also includes a polished brass Round Hand reservoir used to hold a small amount of ink whilst writing. The reservoir can easily be removed and transferred to any of the 11 nibs included. The nibs can be used with any dip pen or calligraphy ink. The Victorian styled wooden box is finished to a high standard with polished brass hinges and clasp closure. This set makes a perfect gift for a discerning scribe - a treasured keepsake for calligraphers and collectors alike.
