“There was no answer except the usual answer life gives to the most complicated and insoluble questions. This answer is: Carry on with your everyday affairs, that is to say, put it out of your mind”.– Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
Isn’t it beautiful? And so true! It is one of my very favorite quotes.
I wrote this on my 40th day of writing copperplate calligraphy.
- Leonardt Principal nib
- Tachikawa straight Holder T-25
- Noodler’s Walnut ink + Mir Gum arabic + Water
- Tomoe River paper (Cream colored, with guidesheet underneath)
I actually do not like the Tomoe River paper at all, and wouldn’t recommend it. This is one of the only times I’ve used it.
I give it another go once in a while, but I still cannot see its charm…!
