But for those wanting to master Spencerian penmanship, there are currently fewer than 30 practice sentences available. And those are in low quality reproductions of 19th century pamphlets. Until now! This all new book offers over 100 pages of example sentences written by Harvest Crittenden, America's foremost expert on the Spencerian script. Developed in the United States, the Spencerian system was the standard for all personal and business correspondence in the 1800s. And this book rightfully reflects the script's origin by using the text from the greatest of American documents: The Declaration of Independence. Each page in this handy workbook includes clearly penned lettering across the top of the page, plus line after line of practice space below where students can master letter height, width, spacing, stroke weight, and more. The pages are even perforated so it is easy for you to tear them out and practice on a perfectly flat surface.

Writing by hand is something that has shaped and revealed our humanity for thousands of years. In a world where people are increasingly swapping pens, letters and love-notes for typing text messages with their thumbs, The Missing Ink is itself a love letter to the lost art of handwriting - as a cultural artefact, an expression of our individuality and as a craft in itself. Novelist Philip Hensher traces the rise and rise of handwriting in the 19th and 20th centuries, as wider education brought this most individual of skills to the masses. We meet the passionate early evangelists of fine writing, such as Platt Rogers Spencer, who travelled to every corner of America preaching the moral worth of copperplate; and the great educational reformers such as Marion Richardson, who had a deep understanding of how best children might be taught to write. But this is also a book about ink and pens themselves, objects that are even now beginning to disappear from our homes and offices; and about whether the style of our writing really does reveal anything about our inner selves. When we can no longer be interested by our friend who writes a little heart over her i's, and no longer have the end of a biro to chew thoughtfully, what will we find to replace it? The Missing Ink is a hugely entertaining, accessible investigation into the warmest of technologies, and the place it had in our lives.

A Teach-Yourself Guide to Italic Handwriting "The Italic Way to Beautiful Handwriting" is your key to mastering the Italic hand in just minutes a day.

Now through modern teaching methods developed by Fred Eager, this handwriting can be yours. The foundation of the Eager system is a dual approach: you learn calligraphic and cursive simultaneously--one handsome, the other functional--to synthesize a perfect balance. Eager's techniques have been widely used throughout the United States and inspired the resurgence of Italic classes and clubs from coast to coast. In this step-by-step, trace-and-copy manual, renowned Italic instructor Fred Eager shows how to develop the ideal handwriting--legible and beautiful, yet characteristically your own.
