 Handwriting is a talent that one can always learn and practice anytime, even as an adult.  We can improve the appearance of our handwriting with diligent practice and still retain a personal style. The results of our handwriting are always a telling detail of our personality. It often happens that we need to sign a legal document or sign an application form. It is then advisable to have developed a unique signature to fit the space and only you can reproduce it and others will recognize it as your signature. It’s the exception to legible handwriting!!                             On this site you may view information about each book as well as download a few sample pages from each one.
