B3859SET. Getty-Dubay Italic Handwriting Series Set of 8 Books
Getty Dubay Italic Handwriting Series Set.

A graded series (K-6) of instructional workbooks for handwriting. This modern handwriting system is based on the Italic letterform and is suited to rapid and legible writing. Unlike the traditionally taught ball & stick / looped cursive program, Italic builds on learned concepts, and letterforms remain the same from basic to cursive. The abrupt change from ball-and-stick printing to very different looped cursive is avoided. Seven workbooks plus the Instruction Manual.

B3143. Script & Scribble / Florey
B3143. Script & Scribble: The Rise and Fall of Handwriting by Kitty Burns Florey. 2009. 225pp. 7"x8.5". Hardcover

In this fascinating exploration of the history of handwriting, Florey presents the importance of writing by hand and its place in our society. She weaves together the evolution of writing implements and scripts, pen-collecting societies, the golden age of American penmanship, and our present calligraphic community.

Steeped in the Palmer Method of Handwriting she learned in Catholic school, Kitty Burns Florey is a self-confessed "penmanship nut" who loves the act of taking pen to paper. So when she discovered that schools today forego handwriting drills in favor of teaching something called keyboarding, it gave her pause: "There is a widespread belief that, in a digital world, forming letters on paper with a pen is pointless and obsolete," she says, "and anyone who thinks otherwise is right up there with folks who still have fallout shelters in their backyards."
