Calligraphy doesn’t have to be hard to learn.

I’ve created this package with step-by-step instructions (a ductus) for creating all of the upper- and lower-case letters (majuscules and miniscules) for a Medieval script called Textura Quadrata. This listing is for a digital pdf download of this ductus.

I selected this script for teaching beginners because it involves a series of short strokes to form all the letters rather than long involved strokes. I then simplified it a little further to make it easy to learn. Also included with this purchase are several example words that can be combined to create several different projects (exemplars), and a blank grid sheet.

To use, simply place some quality paper over the top of the individual sheets, and trace until comfortable with the letter forms. I recommend high quality paper that will not allow inks to bleed through and ruin the original page. Canson Marker Paper is quite translucent and bleed-proof. This product was designed with and for a 2.5mm nib pen. When starting out, I recommend the Faber Castell PITT 2.5mm Calligraphy Pen Chisel Tip (marker), but a 2.4mm Pilot Parallel Pen works great as well. A dip pen with a Speedball C3 or C2 nib would also suffice.

The download consists of a high resolution, scanned-in version of my original work in an easy to use PDF format consisting of 9 pages: Intro and warm ups x 1, Majuscules x 3, Miniscules x 3, Exemplar x 1, Blank Grid x 1. It is 5.5 MB in size.

Love my new broom. Very lightweight, well made as always. Chose the brown one and all the colors coordinate beautifully. I appreciate that they sent me a photo with handle options, and thread colors. The variegated thread suggestion was perfect for the straw and handle color. Thank you so much!!! I can't imagine a broom I would have liked better!

I am in love with this beautiful broom. It makes me happy just to look at it, but sweeping with it is a dream.

Beautiful broom! We chose the brown, and the bristles are a lovely combination of earthy browns, black and natural. The handle is hickory with nice texture, a very gentle curve, and with a nicely smooth finish. We cannot wait to hang our new handmade broom on our wall for both decoration and function. Thank you!
