Copperplate is an elegant seventeenth-century style of writing. Copperplate writing requires a narrow-pointed pen with a deep slit, made to respond to pressure from the writer's hand in order to produce the swelling lines and curves characteristic of this style. The pronounced right-hand slope the copperplate hand requires can be helped by the ‘elbow-oblique’ pen which is held at one angle while the nib points in another.”
John Shyvers, The Calligrapher's handbook
*Learn more in the book Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy by Eleanor Winters.
*Most left-handed writers prefer a straight flexible nib in a straight pen holder. The ‘elbow-oblique’ nibs are NOT recommended for left-handers.
