Hi, I’m Julian Wasserman, and I have a company named Wasserman Design. I’m a calligrapher and an artist. And today, I’m going to teach you how to write as calligrapher, a particular script called chancery cursive. It’s a wonderful script that was born in the renaissance in Italy around the 15th century, late 14th century. And the alphabet letters were modeled after 9th, 10th century Carolingian letter forms. We’re going to learn in this script today and there are around, only a few materials that you’ll need to write. Beginning with the paper, this is a lay out bond paper, this happens to be a Bristol paper. And this is the company where I bought it, but you could use a light weight lay out or bond paper that is acceptable to pen and ink, because they are our tools. We need a bucket of water. I have a little bowl of water. A bottle of ink, and I’m using Higgins’ Eternal ink, and all of these supplies, you can get at your local art supply store. This is what the bottle looks like, it’s very fluid. You need a pen, and this is a pen with a pen holder together. These are some examples of pens, we call them nibs. And this is a pen holder which is what we put the pen into, so that we have a full writing instrument. And you need a pencil, an eraser, and a T square, and that’s all. To give you a little idea about myself, I have an art studio business called Wasserman Design that I began in 1979 here in Washington DC. I create works of art, original works of painting, calligraphy, and drawing. So let’s get started with the next step, which is the ruling of the page.
