I searched high and low for local shops that would sell these and found a reliable store in....North Carolina. Waited patiently for 3 weeks and finally got the entire package! inks + books!! right now, I'm the happiest girl in the world!
Ziller inks were recommended from a calligrapher that I happened to meet through facebook. He's my friend's dad and he's an amazing illustrator and calligrapher. I took his recommendation up about the inks and I absolutely LOVE them! The black is carbon based so it's intense and oh so loverly to calligraphy with!
I was also so excited to get this book too! It gives the main instructional material from a book that is no longer available. Goal: master Spencerian script. It's gorgeous to look at and so smooth and elegant! Got another book that's letterpressed and to die for.
I feel geeky with this post, but I'm very HAPPY right now.
