A Roman Script for Schools

Apparently our grandfather forced our father to practice his handwriting. And we remember our father trying to force us to practice ours. It didn’t stick. But we recognize in this book some of the same exercises that were imposed on us. They are somehow kinder and more understanding in this book, though. (This is not to say that our father was not kind or understanding. He just didn’t know shit about writing. [Although he had {and has} very nice handwriting.]) Alfred Fairbank knew his shit and he prepared this book with care. A useful little book and—according to the Internet—stupidly uncommon. Like, it’s weird how there’s not another copy anywhere.
