Written Letters presents over 20 hands with exemplar alphabets, ductus, and extensive notes on the construction of each letter, generally for both minuscules and majuscules. On the opposite page for each hand, a calligraphic composition is presented and Ms Svaren charmingly shares her thoughts on the hand. The entire text is calligraphic, written out by the author in Italic
