well, not type i suppose, but typography in a way. i have wanted to buy a pen and nib for quite a while now. if you know me, you know my love of font and typography and how i sit and analyse different people's handwriting and font choice and how it makes their writing come across - trust me, it's probably not that interesting, but it fascinates me.

anyway, i expected them to cost quite a bit and was happily surprised that they were incredibly affordable. the whole nib, pen and ink didn't even come to £10 - what a bargain. i have been playing around with writing different things over the past couple of days and i feel like i'm starting to get the hang of it - i'm still having spits a lot though. once i've got used to the way it works, i'm hopefully going to learn some "proper"calligraphy and hopefully add watercolour drawings into the mix (i can dream)

is there anything you've been wanting to take up? do you use a nib and ink or watercolours? tips would be great!
