Calligraphy - meaning the art of beautiful writing, has been used in various forms since ancient times. From ancient Greece and Rome to the Middle Ages, calligraphy was seen as both a skilled art and the main source of written communication and expression until the invention of the printing press. Calligraphy today is increasingly popular and is enjoyed by professional and amateur artists from all over the world.

Winsor & Newton have used their expertise in the production of fine inks since the 1890s to create a wide range of 18 colours which are brilliant and lightfast, allowing today's calligraphers to continue to create this important and flourishing art form.

 

Wide Colour Range


Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Inks offer the widest colour range available for use with a Dip pen or Fountain pen.


The range consists of 18 colours, 14 vibrant colours covering the colour spectrum and 4 extra colours - Matt Black, White, Gold and Silver. All colours are available in 30ml bottles.

 

Brilliance of Colour


All the inks have been formulated with carefully chosen pigments to ensure maximum brilliance of colour. Single pigments have been used wherever possible to make clean colour mixtures.

 

Maximum Versatility


14 of the colours (blue capped bottles) are suitable for use with a dip pen, fountain pen, technical pen and airbrush. These colours are fully intermixable. 4 of the colours (red capped) are suitable for Dip pen and brush (including mixtures using these colours). These colours are opaque. Black and white are Matt.

 

Permanence


Winsor & Newton continually strive to provide artists with the most permanent colours, actually becoming the first company to publish the composition and permanence of their colours in 1892. Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Inks have been formulated to provide the artist with an unrivalled level of permanence and quality. All the Calligraphy Ink colours have a permanence rating of AA or A.

 

Non Waterproof (improved flow)


The formulations of the Inks are non waterproof ensuring they are non clogging and have good flow characteristics when used in a Fountain or Dip pen.

 

Pens for Calligraphy Inks


The 14 blue capped bottles are suitable for use with a Dip Pen, Fountain pen, Technical pen and airbrush. The remaining 4 opaque colours (red caps) are suitable for dip pen and brush.

 

Paper for Calligraphy Inks


For practice work with Calligraphy Inks, layout paper is recommended. For finished pieces, any paper that will not feather, bleed, scratch or wrinkle is suitable. Smooth cartridge paper or hot pressed water colour paper will allow a pen or brush to move evenly and smoothly over the surface with minimum breakage. However, rough surface papers will also give a broken effect and ragged edge to the pen or brush stroke which may be desired by some Calligraphers.
