  •   deckard_47 I used to smoke pipes until my son entered elementary school. By 4th grade or so, the school's anti-tobacco program (which I fully support...) had him convinced I was going to go out on the lanai to smoke a pipe, and drop dead right there on the spot. I quit for his peace of mind. I sold my very nice pipe collection since I knew it would be well over a decade before he graduated and left home; just 4 years to go now. I am pleased to see I'll have some tobacco for penmen to sample when I finally have the opportunity again. 2d
  •   schinloong @deckard_47 lol! Well good for you and for him. The mike Sull tobacco is sold my McClelland tobacco company and they have a website too. It smells very nice and I want one myself just for the fragrance. 2d

schinloong Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore -While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“ ’Tis some visiter,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door —
Only this and nothing more.”

schinloong "An ornamental handwriting is a nuisance! What with flourishes and extraneous appendages, the reader is continually distracted from the text to the characters, and generally ends by wishing the writer had used better taste in his chirography. A master who teaches anything but making neat, plain handwriting, is not fit for a teacher." -By Richard A Wells “Manners, Culture and Dress of the Best American Society 1891” #penmanship #calligraphy 4w

  •   lightlysaltednibs I like how you hung the T on the g. :-) 1mon
  •   galonzorojo G'Day all. Been following these posts! Started doing Calligraphy on my own. Maybe a silly question. How do I pick (brand) a good quality calligraphy paper from the stationary. Cheers from Australia. Gabe. 1mon
  •   schinloong @galonzorojo not a silly question, but a rather important one! You can tell a paper is good if it's not too textured or oily. A porous paper isn't good either. Rhodia and clairefontaine are good brands and you can also ask for a high gsm paper 1mon
  •   raitg Magic letters 1mon
  •   galonzorojo Hello. Thanks for the response. Will give'em a try!! 1mon
