I ordered both the engrossed and spencerian rulers, started practicing with the help of the video and all is fine and easy. Really not hard like with another rulers with so much figuring out the dots and angles. Aquino DaSilva "geniusly" placed this rules like on a silver platter for us. The size of the rulers are so small they can fit in a pencil bag, I will keep mine with their card to not scratch them. Genius and generous from Aquino DaSilva for sharing his knowledge! THANK YOU!!!
