An Elegant Hand

I’ve wanted this book An Elegant Hand by William Henning for a long time, but it is always so pricey! But I found it on sale finally!

It’s a book about 7 famous penman: P.R. Spencer, G.A.Gaskell, Louis Madarasz, W.E. Dennis, A.N. Palmer, F.B. Courtney and W.C. Henning. 

Every chapter was well written and supplemented with lots of pictures.. very good clear photos with captions, even the size of the artwork (some of the art are huge!). The book covers the history of the individual, and even discusses their writing style and methods.

It’s a great coffee table book!
