text Ì ´ P. R. Spencer

Ant handwriting was much prized Today in our computer age a fine beautiful and legible handwriting brings a warm personal touch to our correspondence These books 5 co There is some debate whether you should buy these copy books or print things onlineI wholeheartedly attest getting these 5 copy books full of exercises is a 100% investment into progressThe one advice I would offer is do the exercises in pencilOk yes we seek to be good penmen but following copybook examples with pencil is gentle & controlled plus there is no bleed through on adjacent pageI have spent loads of time on book 1 but that was getting the basic principles I feel accomplished to go on to book 2 and uickly progress 👍
