Here is an example of a calligraphic holiday greeting card.
Here is an example of a short ‘thank you’ note someone learning German might write to their Aunt Jessica.
This example shows the Spencerian Bold style, in which every downstroke has shading. This is based upon a style of Louis Madarasz with some additional styling I’ve cultivated. The main text was done with a well-worn Speedball/Hunt #101 nib. The credit was done with a Speedball/Hunt #102 ‘crowquill’ in a special low-angle pen holder – not exactly a nib one would normally try to do calligraphy with. 🙂
