They are beautiful and when I watch someone write Specerian I am amazed by the grace of both their writing and of the finished product. But you need a flexible nib and much more work to produce a good Spencerian or Copperplate hand. You won't be able to do it with a ball point or a marker or even ordinary fountain pens.
I never liked my handwriting. Two years ago I started relearning Italic Cursive aka Chancery Cursive after twenty years away from it. I read alot of books. If you look at the website for John Neal Bookseller you can find many books on handwriting, Italic, Spencerian, and Copperplate.
I also checked books out of our local library. I used inter-library loan to get ahold of some rare books that are not in print any longer. I recommend Cursive Italic because even an ordinary person like me can learn to do a tolerable cursive italic for daily handwriting.
That's what I use now. People compliment me on my handwriting. I know it is not as good as they think. But it is always legible and every once in a while even beautiful. And it is fun. And I can use a form of it with a pencil or a ball point or a non-italic fountain pen. With Spencerian and Copperplate you lose the thicks and thins that are intrinsic to their beauty if you don't use a flexie.
I don't mean to stop you from learning Spencerian. Caliken's examples blow me away. My grandmother wrote in a Copperplate hand with a flexible nib and my mother tells me that it was unbelievably beautiful.
But I think that Italic Cursive is a better choice for handwriting reform. The best of all the books I've read about reforming your handwriting. And thank you all.
I have to admit I am a bit disappointed -- I hoped to find the examples of even Palmer style all caps words, but perhaps you're right, the italics would look better, or even the block print. Still as I'm writing the Ziller sort of Palmer style of cursive it doesn't look good when I switch from it to italics.
I will definitely try to look at the books recommended. Thanks Edited by PenJay, 17 December - Jun 25, · In this cursive I worksheet, Ivan, Inna, and their ice skates help kids practice writing capital and lowercase I in cursive.
