Product Description:

A set of all five copy books, plus Theory of Spencerian Penmanship book.

Publisher Description:

In the mid-1800's, the Spencerian form of penmanship became a
standard. An elegant handwriting was much prized. Today, in our
computer age, a fine, beautiful, and legible handwriting brings a warm personal touch to our correspondence. These books, 5 copybooks and a theory book may be used to introduce cursive writing to second or third graders or to improve the handwriting of older students or adults.
The five copybooks listed below make a complete course in elementary school handwriting. They can be used in any of the grades.
  • Book 1 Introduces all the short letters. Only four strokes, or principles, as Spencer called them, are needed to produce these letters.
  • Book 2: Adds some of the tall letters - t and d - and the numerals 1-9.
  • Book 3: Completes the lower case alphabet and introduces most of the capitals.
  • Book 4: Completes the capital alphabet and provides practice on all the letters as they appear in words.
  • Book 5: Presents sentences and sayings for writing practice. Examples: Kind words can never die. Promise little and do much.
  • theory book
Category Description for Spencerian Penmanship:

I'm a historian, and I love learning new things about how my ancestors may have lived. Seeing how they wrote back in those times brings me, in a way, closer to them.

My grandparents always had such beautiful handwriting, and anyone could read their writing. I want my children to learn cursive, since public schools are not teaching it anymore.

I like the look of these books.

I was not happy with the current teaching methods of cursive and wanted my children to use something closer to what I learned with because it is nicer looking and it makes them take time in their writing. I didn't realize what it was called until I asked questions at a recent home school convention. Yes, even though we live in a computer age I still want them to have nice handwriting.

Kiddo wants to learn cursive similar to what the founding fathers would have written. This is as close as I could get.

Relaxing and fun!
I would highly recommend this product for anyone who would like to improve their handwriting. It is artistic and relaxing, too. It's way better than adult coloring books.
