Mastering the delicate balance between durability and flexibility, Brause’s excellent craftsmanship has been trusted by calligraphers, artists, and illustrators for over 150 years. Equipped with one natural wood nib holder, a bottle of opaque J. Herbin calligraphy ink, and six Brause steel dip nibs for both script and calligraphy, the Brause Calligraphy Bundle gives you the high quality tools for practicing the art of calligraphy.
Note: This drop includes a Brause Calligraphy Set with six steel nibs, a wooden holder, and a bottle of Black J. Herbin Calligraphy ink, a pack of 12 Brause Lettering Practice Cards, and a pad of Clairefontaine Fine Art paper for calligraphy.
Made from cold rolled steel, which is pressed and molded into the specific size, the Brause steel nibs are carefully manufactured for optimal performance. As they are known for steady and free ink flow from reservoir to tip, Brause nibs are used by creative professionals and aspiring artists alike. With three nibs for script and three nibs for classical calligraphy, the Brause Calligraphy Set also contains a wooden holder that fits each nib, and a bottle of opaque, rich Black J. Herbin Calligraphy ink that has the ideal viscosity for calligraphy dip nibs.
In addition to a well-rounded set of nibs, this Brause Calligraphy Bundle also includes a pad of Clairefontaine Fine Art Calligraphy "Japon" Paper that is manufactured using a traditional dutch art paper method. Each ivory 130 g sheet of paper has a smooth finish that works well with the sharp points of the script nibs to prevent them from catching mid-stroke, and also lets the flat ends of the traditional nibs lay down solid, streak-free lines of ink. To get your practice off to a good start, the Brause Lettering Practice Cards offer templates for nine different scripts including Carolingian Script, Chancery Cursive, Gothic, Gothic Black Letter, Gothic Fraktur, Italic Script, Modern Sans Serif, Roman Alphabet, and Unical. With bold black printing for each letter style, and little arrows that indicate the movement and direction of each stroke as well as their succession, a sketched diagram shows the nib angle required for each script and the cards can be traced through a variety of paper types allowing you to commit every stroke to muscle memory.
