An all new Spencerian practice book features the timeless words of Thomas Jeffereson and perforated, tear-out pages The secret to success is no secret: Practice. Practice. Practice. But for those wanting to master Spencerian penmanship, there are currently fewer than 30 practice sentences available. And those are in low quality reproductions of 19th century pamphlets. Until now! This all new book offers over 100 pages of example sentences written by Harvest Crittenden, America's foremost expert on the Spencerian script. Developed in the United States, the Spencerian system was the standard for all personal and business correspondence in the 1800s. And this book rightfully reflects the script's origin by using the text from the greatest of American documents: The Declaration of Independence. Each page in this handy workbook includes clearly penned lettering across the top of the page, plus line after line of practice space below where students can master letter height, width, spacing, stroke weight, and more. The pages are even perforated so it is easy for you to tear them out and practice on a perfectly flat surface.
