Spencerian script is a pen-written, vintage form of ornamental penmanship. Botanical prints from antiquity are graced with beautiful labels in the Spencerian hand. This extraordinary and legible lettering was popular in 19th- and early 20th-century America, and it became a major force for the instruction of handwriting in both public and private schools. Learn the Spencerian alphabet and write elegant letterforms with writing tools designed to aid penmen, calligraphers and writers of correspondence.

Fee: $245 member, $295 non-member.

Prerequisites: Familiarity with drawing using quill and ink, Spencerian or copperplate lettering.
