Ozment’s Sunken Copies


This rather stained old box guarantees to correct your penmanship in 10 days! The lovely title written on it is so beautiful that I cannot resist.

The letters (which are not as impressive as the title..) are beveled on thick plastic card. The idea is that the student places a piece of paper on it and trace over it again and again till they get the hang of it. For 10 days I assume?

You can see there are pencil marks traced on this copy. I hope the student who had this before me got some good use out of it!
