HERBIN LA PERLE DES ENCRES CALLIGRAPHY SET
A beautiful gift with provenance and great way to get someone started on the love of calligraphy and letterform. This boxed set if from J. Herbin in France. It comes in a vintage school writing box with one wooden nib holder, five steel nibs and a 30ml bottle of violet ink.
Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks. “The Jewel of Inks” was created in Paris in 1700. Herbin uses natural dyes in their fountain pen inks.
At Flax, we also have a number of pads, notebooks and journals appropriate for practice, as well as books about calligraphy, such as "Nib and Ink" (a calligraphy sketchbook - $16.95).
