The Deluxe Fountain Pen Kit from Sheaffer is a great beginner set for anyone who would like to learn calligraphy. The set includes 3 comfort grip calligraphy pens in fine, medium and broad, 1 converter for use with bottled ink, 6 assorted Skrip ink cartridges, and a little instruction leaflet to get you started on your way to lettering.
Packaged in a decorative storage tin, this set makes a great gift. The instruction leaflet that is included is nice for getting started, but a more detailed notebook might be useful for someone who is interested in learning many different types of fonts and styles of lettering.
The Brause Calligraphy Practice Book, pictured here, is a good addition to any calligraphy set. This practice book combines an introduction to calligraphy with practice pages to master the basic strokes. This notebook is especially interesting, because it includes a history of calligraphy, description of tools and lettering fonts.
