This lesson shows how to write the alphabets using a straight nib holder.

This tutorial shows modern calligraphy lettering using a straight holder.
It's a perfect lesson for those who have a straight holder.

A nib is the pen tip that is used in calligraphy writing.
To use a nib, you will need to insert it into a pen holder.

The holder comes in two types: an oblique holder and a straight holder,
and each holder has a different shape.

In calligraphy, the letters should have a 55° slant.
The oblique holder has a flange that is already slanted at this angle.

While the straight holder doesn't have this angle and needs to be held at an angle,
some people prefer writing with a straight holder.

Maki Shimano teaches how to write with an oblique holder in another lesson,
but this time she shows how to write using a straight holder.
