Who here has ever used a #Speedball A-Series nib?! Who even knew about @speedball_art’s ORIGINAL #nib first made over a century ago?

We couldn’t get over how many different looks it can do and how easy it was to use!! Just look at this demo sheet from @angievangalis’s mini class last night at #LettersCaliforniaStyle!

You really have to try this!! Available for purchase along with the new #SpeedballTextbook (and soooo much more) from the @paperandinkarts pop-up shop at the conference.

Watch for the next post about the exclusive lunchtime book signing!! #calligraphysupplies #calligraphyconference #learncalligraphy #calligraphy #handlettering #letterarts #letterdesign #LAcalligraphy #SocietyforCalligraphy by societyforcalligraphy http://ift.tt/1VcvCgY

Who better to learn #gothicizeditalic from than the #NewYorker whose #calligraphy exemplar was featured in the Centennial Edition of the #SpeedballTextbook!

Thank you, @barrymorentz, for bringing in all this eye candy from a lifetime of #lettering, #Shakespeare, and #Wagner.

Pictured above is a brush Romans demo piece written by renowned calligrapher John Stevens (@calligraphile) during a workshop in 1986 and one of the most coveted items at last year’s live auction.
