This creative calligraphy exploration kit can unlock your penchant for poetry by using the words and writing style of "The Master of the Surprise Ending," Edgar Allan Poe. (Poe was also considered the father of the modern detective story.)
This complete writing, correspondence and calligraphy starter kit comes enclosed within a large wooden box which resembles a large antique leather-bound book. (Ours is Vegan leather.)
This set includes:
• One quill feather pen to write or draw with.
• One red glass pen
• One Brause wooden nib holder
• Eight assorted pen nibs. Some are new, and some are unused antiques, what we in the trade call "new, old stock."
• One 30ml bottle of Black J. Herbin "Perle Noire" Ink.
• One 10ml bottle of Red J. Herbin "Rouge Courbier" ink.
• One Wax Seal Stamp.
• Two sealing wax sticks.
• Four Fabriano Mediovelis folded cards and five matching envelopes.
• A print-out of an antique Spencerian Alphabet page.
• Two Poe poems, written in his own handwriting.
• Two Calligraphy practice pages with instructions.
• Two full sheets of instructions.
• All contained within a wooden box made to look like an antique book.
The pen nibs included are pointed nibs, which are the best kind for Spencerian/Copperplate and Modern calligraphy. We've also included a few ornamental nibs which will write a line evenly and one slanted nib for Uncial italics.
This calligraphy and writing set is inspired by the poetry and writing of the Master of Gothic Poetry himself, Mr. Edgar Allan Poe. Revered for his classic "High Romantic Gothic" poetry and short stories such as; "The Raven" and "The Bells," Poe lived a creative, but short life from 1809 to 1849.
