This is my "Advanced Italic Calligraphy" set, and to my knowledge it is the most comprehensive set of its kind currently available on the market. The case that houses this set is one that was completely made by hand within my shop, and it was made to be durable and compact for maximum portability, as well as practical for everyday use. The lid's outer binding material is a woven, brocade, upholstery-grade fabric that has been stretched over and glued to a matched set of book-panels; the underlying interior fabric is a Midnight Black, military-grade 1000D Nylon Cordura; the internal Crimson fabric is a velveteen micro-suede; the black elastic banding used to hold the nibs in place is a commercial grade elastic; the frame and spine of this case is solid Northern Louisiana Black Walnut that was originally hand-milled over 60 years ago. The exterior fabric has been treated to be dust, dirt and moisture resistant.
The Black Walnut frame and spine has been lacquered with my hand-crafted lacquer in a clear French Polish application, and then waxed with a heavy-duty, commercial-grade, synthetic wax for extra protection, enhanced durability, and longer life. The outer dimensions of the set when closed are approximately 8" (20.32 cm) deep x 5" (12.7 cm) wide x 1.25 (3.175 cm) high. This set is intended to be compact, highly portable, very durable, and budget friendly.The specific breakdown of nibs, in the order of their placement within this set, is as follows.
