****What makes a calligraphy pen left handed?
A left hander usually experiences problems with even a normal fountain pen nib scratching and digging into the paper, which is even more exaggerated with a calligraphy pen, where the nibs tend to be wider. It is therefore important that the nibs are cut off in the correct direction so that a left hander can write with them , that the end of the nib is flat on the paper and that the letter thickness is not the wrong way around!
What is Italic Writing:The graceful Italic alphabet evolved during the Renaissance. It is characterized by a gentle slope to the right and the letters are compressed so that round letters form an ellipse rather than a circle. Proportions are: Capital height 7 nib widths, x-height of 8 nib widths. For most Italic hands the pen nib should be held at a 45 degree angle to the writing line.
