The bird song in the background is an utter delight - complements the experience of watching your fantastic penmanship.

ahh being right handed makes it look so much more fluid.  Being left handed I have to start my strokes differently.  Just gotta keep practicing and eventually mine will look as crisp as this.  Great job!

At the moment I have a weekly class of six Pensioners, one of whom is left handed. She decided to persevere with changing over to her right hand. With plenty of practice she can now write this Gohic Script. Worth a try ?

Love this pen- have the full set but find they bleed on most paper EVEN the expensive parchment calligraphy paper I bought . Do you find this problem? And what type of paper are you using here
Yirdy Machar (3 years ago)
Do not  find bleeding is a problem, Maybe because I akways use bleedproof paper for calligraphy. The paper I am using on this video is normal photocopy paper I use in my printer. It is almost glossy. Good Luck The best parchment is not in pads, but comes in packets of 10/12 sheets,

Yirdy, this is a great video.  It is much much better than any of the learning materials I've used. The camera angle allows us to see precisely each stroke.  Thanks for your effort to make and post for us beginners.

Old English was always a challenge for me and even just now trying to write as you write was as if I had never ever done it before (lol). I will need to get back into practice. I'm self taught and love dabbling in it for myself.  Your video has encouraged me to start workiing with it again. It was once my fave hobby. Thank you for sharing!
I wonder... If I had a paralell calligraphy pen, I would write "Sherwood Forest" (like what it said on Robin Hoodwinked, Tom and Jerry).

My Favorite Letterstyle since i found it on my Windows ^^ ( But actually Steve Jobs Idea ) He also wrote Kaligraphie as well ^^
Yirdy Machar (5 years ago)
Don´t tell me, tell Pilot Pens. Or use your imagination (if you have any) and use a filler system with which you CAN use pitch black ink. or go back to school and use as a dip pen.

But the Ink of the Pilot P Pens is not pitch black

I have posted a link to a supplier, in UK.

I teach calligraphy and all my pupils are now using the Pilot Paralell Pens. I have posted a link to my supplier on the original description Good luck.

I just started calligraphy and was really having trouble with the Old English alphabet. Your style and work is amazing!! You helped me get the hang of it, and I am definitely going to look for that pen, it writes beautifully.
Yirdy Machar (5 years ago)
