Overview

In this engaging history, Tamara Plakins Thornton traces handwriting in America from colonial times to the present. Exploring such subjects as penmanship pedagogy, handwriting analysis, autograph collecting, handwriting experts, and calligraphy revivals, Thornton investigates the shifting functions and meanings of handwriting, showing, for example, how it came to be linked with individual identity and how in our times handwriting reflects a nostalgia for the past and a rejection of modernity.

Editorial Reviews

San Francisco Examiner
[This] book is a fascinating essay about the private rooms that symbolized a new Renaissance self-consciousness about individuality and about the impression that objects -- especially books, art and curiosities of nature -- make about whoever owns them....[Illustrated] with a rich variety of art-works from the period, from decorated initials in illuminated manuscripts to tomb sculpture and painted portraits. -- San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle
