Spencerian Penmanship Starter Kit is wonderful for those looking to learn cursive the Platt R. Spencer way. Spencerian is a modern method less rigid than English roundhand or copperplate.
Handcrafted nib holder by Master Penman Michael Sull, a complete set of Spencerian manuals, and sumi ink. Everything you need to learn the precursor to American cursive.
This set includes the Theory Book plus all 5 Copybooks. The Theory Book explains how all the letters can be made gracefully and rapidly using various combinations of a few basic pen strokes. It explains Spencer's philosophy of teaching principles which engage the mind as well as the hand. It also details his methods for teaching classes of children. One of these is having the children write rhythmically, in concert, as the teacher counts. The power of this method is being rediscovered today.
Makes a wonderful and unusual gift.
