P.R. Spencer Sr. Documents
« on: April 04, 2014, 12:00:08 AM »
I know some of you have seen the small images of this via my IG or Facebook, but I thought I'd share here in high resolution.

I recently was able to obtain an original specimen of writing from P.R. Spencer Senior, the man who created Spencerian. If you would like to view it, it is located at the link below in high resolution.

Also included was a second envelope..

I always wonder what he would think if he could see his writing technique perfected by CP Zaner, Madarasz, FB Courtney.

I like to imagine that in 100 years people will be handing around scraps of writing by McPhee, Loong, Fraser ... ;)
