I am so glad to have found this website via Wikipedia. I plan on attending the next convention in Nashville.

I have been practicing calligraphy since the 4th grade and have been a professional/commercial calligrapher since 2005. I specialize in Italic and Brushscript.

I look forward to future fellowship with this community and to learn ways to perfect my craft.

I found this site after listening to a review on of a book called "Scribbles and Script". I wish there was a link to the PDF files on the individual index pages for the books you offer for download, or even a link to the main page. I downloaded each page individually and then found out there was a PDF of the whole thing! I downloaded the Palmer Method of Business Writing. Thank you.

A marvelous experience to peruse through your website. Your efforts to promote calligraphy and penmanship are outstanding! and no doubt, are lauded by the rest of your viewership who are keen to know what a fine sophisticated and most enlightened art the written word can be with a little imagination and a lot of heart++++. Hope the convention can roll through Toronto, Canada someday!. Keep up the good work!

Congratulations for the work you are doing. I want to promote handwriting in a museum house dedicated to a writer in Coatepec, my hometown. It is a beautiful place in Mexico, if any of you would be interested in an exchange with us, we would provide room and board in exchange for a course. Please find more information in our website

Hi there, I was very intrigued by the site and I think the work is beautiful! I have great admiration and appreciation for what you all do...true artists!

What a great surprise coming across this website. I have been a calligrapher for over 5 years, yet I never thought to search around for an organization for Penmanship/Calligraphy. The links are useful and are very much appreciated. Thank you!

Well this website is overwhelmingly a pleasant surprise. It is unbelievable that so many people still want to learn the art of good writing. Well good writing these days is of course an ART.

Tony — Spain


I am a 62 year old Englishman currently living in Spain. I started calligraphy about 12 months ago and discovered your website about six months ago. Your site has inspired me to keep working hard at calligraphy and the videos have really helped me to develop my skills. Thank You. This is a great site.

Hi there. Just a quick comment. I'd like to say thanks for the guidelines, and the several books you have posted on your website

Have a good day.



I stumbled onto your web site, I really enjoyed it, My dad taught penmanship in the seminary where he was going to school in the first part of the last century, he passed away when I was young, I always admired good penmanship so I will see if I can learn.

I have been inspired by your and other websites to learn Spencerian as a New Years Resolution. I've always had lovely penmanship (not to pat myself on the back) and I wish to take it up to the next level. Wish me luck!

A student of mine just brought in his copy of the Portfolio of Ornate Penmanship, an A. N. Palmer Company publication from The American Penman. We see that you have a PDF of the same on this site. We are wondering how old the portfolio is. Just curious. Looked and could not find a date.

Thank you so much.

The best date I can come up with is 1896, although there could have been later reprints.
