2022 Exchanges / Re: Stuck on You Exchange Sign Ups are Now OPEN!

May I also add a request to all participants to put (on the back, perhaps, with the return address) a mention that this is a flourish forum exchange envelope, such as "FF exchange Stuck 2022." With other colorful mail coming in from other sources, and some mail being delayed well after the exchange ended, it's helpful to know who sent what for what purpose. Two days ago, I received an envelope from the Recycle exchange in March and had to go to the archives to figure out what exchange it belonged to (very happy to receive it though).

Such nice work! Thank you for sharing Michael!
You're welcome, @Starlee  As it has been several years since the results of the exchanges have been regularly posted, I thought some of the newer members might not have seen them, and so to encourage participation in the exchanges, I'll be posting results of the next few exchanges (Sun, Moon & Stars probably next week. As this exchange had two lists, I'll be putting up only list 2 (I've received them all, except, oddly, one I sent to myself (actually my wife). If anyone from list 1 wants to, they can add what they received to this thread when I post it. Remember to obscure part of the address and return address if you do so).
Remember, too, all are welcome, from beginner to expert. This is not a competition, but rather a sharing. And it's such fun to receive colorful mail amongst the bills and junk.

I remembered a conversation with Bob Hurford at IAMPETH - and the angular caps are often associated with several styles that have the name Spencerian Ladies Hand. Bob noted that the ladies hand is a bit more compressed that the original Spencerian and it is a tiny bit more upright. His opinion was that the Ladies Hand was a variation that would allow a person to simply get more words onto the page without sacrificing any of the beauty of Spencerian.

If you Google *Spencerian Ladies Hand* you can find examples - and looking at a full page of it - does reveal a very nice texture. The original Spencerian can be gorgeous in a full page letter - but it also looks better if there are nice margins. With the Ladies Hand - you don't need wide margins. Maybe someone can come up with an example of each one - to illustrate the difference.
From the New Spencerian Compendium of Penmanship, here are examples of both.
Principal differences in these examples:  Ascenders and descenders in LH are 4x-ht versus 2x-ht in medium script, and the use of recommended capitals (although there are many variations acceptable, as noted). Slant in each is the same. Difference in placement of the shades. Compression is about the same in standard form, but medium hand was written in many levels of compression, with the stretched versions of medium hand being common  (a la Madarasz) in the later 1800's.
