For many letter lovers, the typewriter is a great joy. The letters made with vintage typewriters have an irregular quality to them that bridge the gap between handwritten letters and computer-generated letters. In this class, we will learn to write typewriter inspired lettering using a monoline Speedball B-nib. This class is great for students who love the look of typewritten letters, for students who want more experience on the techniques of using the monoline nib, or both. 

MATERIALS NEEDED: Speedball B3 nib; nib holder; favorite ink; practice paper that is see through enough to see guidelines underneath (like Gilbert bond, Canson Pro Layout marker paper, Bienfang marker paper, or Borden & Riley layout paper); paper clips; pen for taking notes
