    I am looking to teach myself calligraphy and hand lettering. What do you recommend? Any books, supplies that a beginner should not be without? I’m hoping to find a class at some point, but my life leaves me in location limbo right now, so its not an immediate option. Thanks so much!!

    • Hi! I’m glad that you’re interested in calligraphy and hand lettering! What I can recommend is starting with a quill package and finding the right quill that you like best. Have a play with that, learn your thick and thins and practice! With hand lettering, it’s really about the style that you like. You can work with anything from pencil to ink pens to brush pens etc. the possibilities with this one are endless. Look for a lot of inspiration and test out your strengths and your aesthetic. I always suggest to start with the quill first to learn the flow of the letters, but you can certainly start wherever! Good luck! xo.
