I am looking for calligraphy books or a refill for my fountain pen.
In the beginning, Pentalic focused on calligraphy, publishing instructional books and introducing writing instruments and calligraphy paper. Our focus has since transitioned to more universal paper products that anyone can appreciate: business professionals, hobbyists, students, artists, designers, writers and note-takers. Our Paper for Pens is a smooth paper that accepts many types of ink. The recycled paper in our Traveler Pocket Journal is staggeringly versatile, standing up to virtually any type of ink!
