Could be a lot easier to use
Review by Kat on 03/27/19 review stating Could be a lot easier to use
Just arrived today. Im assuming most of the text was picked up from a period teaching guide, because the instructions are in a style that was probably in vogue back when Spencerian handwriting was the norm. The majority of the pages (pages 39-173 of 173) are practice pages with letters and phrases to copy, which might be helpful if the book were designed to lie flat when open. As it is, youll be practicing your penmanship on a curved surface. I still plan to play with it but I doubt its going to help a great deal.

The right book at the right time !
Review by RALPH C. on 12/05/18 review stating The right book at the right time !
I saw my handwriting getting sloppier as I aged. I also found that I appreciated a hand written note as correspondence. The elegant style of Spencerian Handwriting has encouraged me to slow down and use handwritten notes to friends and family. Excellent for business relationships.It is relaxing to practice the strokes and style.

Brings back memories
Review by LOU B. on 05/17/18 review stating Brings back memories
I do a lot of pen and ink lettering so when I saw this I just had to have it. It goes back a bit further than my schooling but we still used a lot of the exercises when learning cursive. It seems cursive is becoming a lost art and this book brings back the beauty and dignity of handwriting. I love it!
