DVD40. Spencerian with Ron Tate DVD
Spencerian with Ron Tate DVD. 2009. 1 hour, 27 minutes.

This step-by-step, stroke-by-stroke, instructional DVD presents the history, tools, and techniques for this beautiful hand. You learn Spencerian Script with the help of professional calligrapher, Ron Tate. Spencerian is an American style of penmanship. The lower case has only a few stressed strokes in a word.

Spencerian originated in Ohio in the 1860s with Platt Rogers Spencer.

This includes 15 chapters showing:
Instruction and demonstration of all the letters of the alphabet
Hand positions and correct posture
Practice exercises
Writing angles and letter sizes
Samples of master penmen scrapbooks
