Worth it
I was reluctant to buy this given the price for such a small book, but I feel it was worth it. I have tried the older reproduction Spencerian "theory" book but I found it a bit lacking and unclear. This book manages to be more straightforward while also being more comprehensive. I feel that my writing, even when not using a flex pen, has improved immensely. Previously, people commented on how indecipherable my handwriting is. Several people have already complimented me on my "elegant" handwriting. Worth $17.95? I would say so!

My 15 yr old loves experimenting with different writing styles, and thought this could add to her skill set.

I once had this book, but it got lost. I'd like to pick up calligraphy again.

I'm really torn between this and the old-fashioned Spencerian set for my daughter's birthday. What is the difference between the two?

BEST ANSWER: We purchased "Spencerian Script Practice Set," "Learning to Write Spencerian Script," AND also the "American Cursive Handwriting: Self-Study Workbook & Curriculum" --all by Michael & Debra Sull.

"Learning to Write Spencerian Script" is a nice in-depth instructional book for learning Spencerian script writing, included were 2 loose pages that are practice sheets (photocopy for student practice).
Instruction included for each letter plus some examples of alternative forms. Lower case letters look like traditional cursive with some additional shading; upper case letters have lots of additional flourishes. Allows the student to create their own "fancy" writing for special projects & their own beautiful signature.
I bought it for my artsy teen daughter who is interested in calligraphy & other creative lettering --she loves it!

"Spencerian Script Practice Set" is a bundle of sheets: 5 pages of basic instruction; 29 guided practice sheets, 10 just lined sheets. Similarly shaped letters are grouped together for practice, same as "Learning to Write ..." book, but definitely condensed. Upper case letters have the fancy style; lowercase letters can be shaded or unshaded --it is up to the student. Not as many alternative forms for each letter. Nice amount of practice sheets with models of each letters, then words & sentences.

"American Cursive Handwriting: Self-Study Workbook & Curriculum" is a packet of 349 loose pages that include history of, and instruction & practice for traditional cursive. No extra flourishes for letters.
Great for teaching traditional cursive with self-paced study.

Heads up: I ordered all 3 items at the same time in Aug. 2015 from Rainbow Resources, and all three had to be backordered and had delayed delivery. "Learning To Write.." & "Amer. Cursive..." arrived in Jan 2016, and the "Practice Set" arrived now June 2016. Seems the publisher had more demand than they were prepared for.? Hopefully, they have shortened the delivery times.
