For years my daughter (11) has been asking to learn a fancier script handwriting. She’s used HWT while hoping for something more elegant, and hasn’t been impressed by the modern alternatives I’ve found. I think she would like something more old-fashioned. She’s drawn to calligraphy and hand-lettering. I’d like to take advantage of this interest, but for her everyday writing more than just signs or addressing envelopes. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could incorporate copywork with beautiful old-fashioned handwriting? And which handwriting should I choose? It would need to be purely offline. I’ve looked at Spencerian but am going into this without any information and I’m not sure where to begin to research.
I was going to second the Spencerian. Mott media publishing has books cheap like $5 a piece for that style handwriting. It has several different levels and instructions for each level in the books and has a theory book to help you understand how to teach it/ learn it.
I started digging into Spencerian more and I’m a bit overwhelmed. It’s not exactly your average handwriting book, is it? People are making their own pencils and buying very specific types of paper- even mixing their own ink. This should count as a handicraft as well!
