Spencerian is a form of penmanship that was popular in 19th and early 20th century in America. It was first introduced by Platt Rogers Spencer (1800-1864), and soon became a standard of education and business writing, then it was named after him to honor his unique contribution to penmanship. During the golden age of Spencerian (approximately 1850 to 1925), generations of penmen in America developed and refined original Spencerian to an elegant and elaborate style,as known as Ornamental Penmanship.
In this book, we will study the Spencerian written in the Golden Age of Penmanship in America, which is more ‘completed’ than it was before. We will go through the simplified principles of Spencerian and practice from basic to advance. Movement and accuracy of form are the greatest aim for new students.
