The only workbook I could find where you actually can trace the letters for motor memory and write directly in the book. It was helpful when teaching a small class of beginners. Two styles are included (Gothic & Italic).

This is an excellent "keep it simple" text that does not overwhelm the beginner. It is a programmed trace-copy-practice workbook that enables one to gain experience and a degree of proficiency in two texts, gothic and italic. With this book and an inexpensive chisel point marker, one can quickly learn to make place cards, invitations, certficates, dipolmas, etc.
