Manuscript Calligraphy Compendium is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as I thought I did think this set came with a full instruction booklet, but the examples it came with aren’t great at all. Bit disappointed to be fair

Rated 4 out of 5 by from focuses the mind! excited to get this product - very informative instructions, perhaps not for the very beginner, but the pens and inks are lovely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only 1/5 nibs worked! The set came with around five nibs and I could only get one of the nibs to work properly so I returned the set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter kit This kit comes with everything you need to get started in calligraphy. Four pens, four nibs and a bunch of inks in different colour, they're all laid out in a lovely tin case. There's a guide book and a pad of practice paper which is good quality. My only concern was that the larger nibs are difficult to get a decent ink flow through them. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong though. I would definitely recommend this set to anyone looking to get into calligraphy, the book gave a number of projects and how to instructions also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An ideal gift Purchased for a gift the pens and inks were nicely presented in a metal box. The quality of the pen barrel, a very lightweight plastic was a little disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great beginners set! This was brought as an introduction to Calligraphy for myself. The product was in a handy box, and contained everything for a beginner, including a variety of coloured inks. The instruction book was helpful and easy to follow. Very pleased with product. I marked as good as opposed to excellent as I would have preferred not to have coloured plastic holders for the spares, but that is just my preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to handle, nice to write with. I was an Art student at Liverpool College of Art, and learned calligraphy writing there, briefly. This set is really good to use, and the related information, is really well written. I definately recommend this product from 'hobbycraft'

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to learn This calligraphy kit is very easy to learn and has very easy instructions to read on how to learn different styles. The only downfall is, is that sometimes the pens are a little scratchy and that the ink stops and starts; also the thickest pen is very difficult to get started. Other than that it is a very good product.
