This book explains how, starting with simple exercises, one can easily learn to write beautifully. It is designed to be used alone, although it can also be used by a teacher with a class. The end result of the exercises and practises is a plain handwriting style. The last chapter shows how, by using a different kind of pen, it can be converted into a graceful italic hand.
