I love calligraphy, but don't have as many chances to use it as I would like. This is Copperplate script done with a speedball C-6 nib. I am happily getting a replacement vintage Gillett 303 pen nib in the mail soon (from a lovely new friend), and will have to rummage up an offset nib holder. But the lumpy swirls in L's and other letters will be so much more delicate! I cannot wait for the mail to come.

(A true friend is the best of all good things, and that, of everything, which one dreams the least of acquiring. Pardon my bumpy translation.)
