Where to start as a Complete Beginner.
Pointed nib calligraphy is the best place to start. You learn the processes that are fundamental to all modern calligraphy, but because the nib forces you to go slowly it is a good place to begin.
Brush Pen is the free-spirited version of the nib!
Once you understand the basic principle, begin to experiment with brush pens. Just like a nib, the thick and thin lines which make calligraphy distinctive are made by changing the pressure applied.
Use a paintbrush to create stunning calligraphy.
The term 'modern' encompasses calligraphy created using a pointed nib, a paintbrush, or a brush pen. Once you have learnt to write with a brush you can apply lettering to any surface.
