It Still Matters,
This review is from: The Missing Ink: The Lost Art of Handwriting, and Why it Still Matters (Hardcover)
Pleasing and legible handwriting is an art, that gives pleasure to the writer and to the reader. This book explores many aspects of the history of handwriting, the ways it has been taught, and the current disdain for this skill. I especially enjoyed the chapters on different styles and educators. In the 1950s I learned with pencil, then dip-pen, then fountain pen, with the common problem of the left-hander's well-inked hand and sleeve. I was disappointed that there was absolutely NO mention of left-handedness, and the often inadequate help we get with our handwriting.
I recommend The Missing Ink as an interesting introduction to this subject - and hope there will be a revised edition for us lefties.
