17 Scribal Insights Of Patricia Lovett

Surfing YouTube I came across these well presented scribal videos. This series by Patricia Lovett is a perfect place for you to begin or review things scribal. They’re inspiring too. 

Lovett is a long time professional calligrapher. She also wrote 

Calligraphy and Illumination: A History and Practical Guide,


Her information in the videos is great, but she also shares items she’s created or is selling. Most of these videos are less than 5 minutes long.

  1. Calligraphy – pens 
  2. Calligraphy – papers
  3. Calligraphy – measuring lines
  4. Calligraphy – Setting up a calligraphy sloping board
  5. Calligraphy – using a pen 
  6. Calligraphy – inks and paint
  7. Calligraphy – three golden rules
  8. Calligraphy – Spacing 1 (again)
  9. Calligraphy – Spacing 2
  10. Calligraphy – sharpening nibs
  11. Calligraphy Clip – vellum and parchment
  12. Calligraphy Clip: Colour mixing in the pen
  13. Book of Hours Recreation Project 7+ minutes

I combined the following videos for you into playlists based on one calligraphy script. Each script is taught by Patricia Lovett in Youtube videos.

  1. Uncial Script Playlist 6 videos 
  2. Gothic Script Miniscules Playlist 7 videos
  3. Gothic Script Capitals Playlist 5 videos 
  4. Italic Script Playlist 6 videos
This is such a wonderful bunch of calligraphy videos. I hope you find time for them all or recommend them to a friend. Enjoy.
