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. In copperplate, every down stroke is thickened by applying pressure to the pen. Spencerian Script can be written with more speed than copperplate. Spencerian originated in Ohio in the 1860s with Platt Rogers Spencer.
