New products added to our catalogue for 2019 February 8, 2019 09:09

It's been a while since I last blogged - running PenmanDirect is a full time job so I get little time to sit down and compose anything. However, a customer brought this lapse to my attention today so here's the first post of 2019!

We have two new colours to add to our ever-growing collection of the beautiful Finetec Coliro mica watercolours from Germany. We have stocks of the Lagoon and Sphinx pans in stock for your perusal and purchase. Lagoon is a lovely deep bluey-green and Sphinx is a sandy pale yellow, both of which will ensure beautiful results to your calligraphy.

The other main new product results from our partnership with Babooche Calligraphy, a London-based business offering calligraphy workshops and private commissions. We are proud to be offering for sale their Modern Calligraphy Workbook. These are stunning 80-page, wire-bound books with guidelines and lessons on how to achieve the correct letter formations in order to create modern calligraphy. Created with luxurious calligraphy paper, you will be absolutely spoilt all the time you're practising!

Lastly, following on from the workbooks, we have now put together a Modern Calligraphy Beginner's Kit, which consists of a workbook and all the other items required in your journey of learning the contemporary version of the art of beautiful writing. All these products are live on the store and can be ordered at your leisure.

Other new additions to our catalogue this month include Speedball C-Style Pen Sets, Speedball Oblique Pen Sets and Higgins Black Magic Ink. More products are being added to our catalogue all the time so if there's something you'd like to see in the store, please do let us know and we'll see if we can get it in stock for you.
