The course asks for the student to try out various nibs. Dickblick supplies Hunt nibs and not Gillott, but I found a good source for both at John Neal Bookseller. I have Hunt 102 and Gillott 290 and 659 nibs on the way, along with the various penholders--it seems there are quite a few different sizes. I checked out some very cool looking holders but I'll refrain for now.

I easily became hopelessly intrigued at the John Neal site. Pages of books on calligraphy and illumination. Then the books on bookmaking. Wow... Wheels within wheels...

No more hemming and hawing, it's now time to pull back into the rhythm of daily drawings, as it's over a week until the course begins. Next up? Nuts! :-)
