May’s Water Paper Book is a series of books that provide one of the best and most convienent ways to practice calligraphy. Each book in the series features a famous writing or poem from Chinese history, and allows you to copy the note exactly as it should be written.
And one of the most intriging parts of these books is that they allow you to practice on Magic Water Paper, which is actually made of a flannel material instead of paper. Using water instead of ink, when you write on the material, your marking disappears about two minutes after you make it. Not only does this save paper, making the books environmentally friendly, it provide endless practice for you! The books are great both for beginners learning calligraphy as well as more advanced artists who want to learn different scripts or refine their current skills.
