Italic is a modern handwriting system based
Sloppy handwriting isn't surprising. Most of us were taught two very difficult and very different writing systems. First we struggled with 52 "ball-and-stick" letters. Then we switched to looped cursive---a style only 19th century engravers could properly master. Neither set of letterforms was designed for handwriting.
Italic is a modern handwriting system based on 16th century letterforms that are highly suited to rapid and legible writing. Developed for everyday use during the Italian Renaissance and based on natural hand movements, the clean, loop-free letters of both printed and joined modern italic are essentially the same. The simple and repetitive shapes encourage faster learning of the necessary eye-hand muscle coordination. Italic satisfies the need for both a practical, legible form of communication and an aesthetically pleasing script that can reflect your own individuality.
