Script and Scribble

Item Details

Steeped in the Palmer Method of Handwriting she learned in Catholic Schook, Florey is a self-confessed 'penmanship nut' who loves the act of taking pen to paper. Here she explores the history of handwriting and tackles the importance of writing by hand and its place in our increasingly electronic society. Weaving together the evolution of writing implements and scripts, pen-collecting societies and the growing popularity of handwriting analysis, she asks the question: Is writing by hand really no longer necessary in today's busy world?

My only question if we do not teach people how to write with pen and paper what happens if the electricity ever goes off? I always like the idea of having a reasonable back up plan.

Love the Book. Lot's of interesting facts and samples.
