Write now provides a complete program to enable you to develop a clean, elegant, and legible hand. The italic style produces functional handwriting using simple, aesthetic forms that are natural and rhythmic and that satisfy the need for both legibility and speed. Most of the styles taught in schools were developed in the 19th century and were designed to mimic the ornate copperplate engraving of that era. They abound with loops and flourishes and an extreme letter slope. Because of the difficulty involved in mastering these shapes, handwriting is often hard to read. But, there's hope! WRITE NOW incorporates the italic style which developed in Europe 500 years ago as a practical and efficient style for everyday use, and is once again gaining popularity in schools worlwide. Italic avoids many of the traps that cause illegibility, even when written in a hurry. Achieving a distinctive, readable hand is surprisingly easy with regular practice. Italic can be written with any pencil or pen. The book is especially designed to lie flat on the table and be easy to write in. You'll find WRITE NOW easy to follow and full of step-by-step guidance and tips.
