I’ve been trying my hand at Copperplate calligraphy recently.  I thought this “Abomination” was pretty nice.  Except for the slight blob at the leader for the “b.”  I think something was stuck in the tines of my nib.  And also the uneven cross bar of the “t.”  Still working on that.

Why “Abomination”?  Why not?

  • Gillott 404 nib
  • Moon Palace sumi ink
  • M by Staples notebook paper (don’t know the weight and I happened to have a stack on my desk)
