9780020799900: The Italic Way to Beautiful Handwriting: Cursive and Calligraphic

A Teach-Yourself Guide to Italic Handwriting

The Italic Way to Beautiful Handwriting is your key to mastering the Italic hand in just minutes a day. Originally developed in the early Renaissance as a "speedwriting" technique by Papal scribes who wanted to combine beauty and legibility with speed, Italic handwriting continues to appear today on diplomas, wedding invitations, and other special announcements.

Now through modern teaching methods developed by Fred Eager, this handwriting can be yours. The foundation of the Eager system is a dual approach: you learn calligraphic and cursive simultaneously—one handsome, the other functional—to synthesize a perfect balance. Eager's techniques have been widely used throughout the United States and inspired the resurgence of Italic classes and clubs from coast to coast.

In this step-by-step, trace-and-copy manual, renowned Italic instructor Fred Eager shows how to develop the ideal handwriting—legible and beautiful, yet characteristically your own.
