Originally published by Van Nostrand Reinhold in 1984, this revised edition provides for the self-teaching of four italic scripts. The first three--basic italic, formal italic, and chancery italic--are fairly standard calligraphy forms. The fourth style, cursive italic, is designed for use as everyday handwriting. Presented in the authors' previous books, the eight-volume Italic Handwriting Series (Continuing Education Pr., 1986), and Write Now ( LJ 3/1/91), this style was devised to facilitate the transition from printing to cursive writing. The format of this book, with practice space directly below the calligraphic examples (and instructions to use tracing paper), make comparison and correction easy. Recommended for public libraries.
