Problem is, we are getting so used to typing on keyboards, ipads, iphones etc., handwriting which was sort of compulsory before all this has almost disappeared.  Therefore even someone with a good hand but writing less and less would find it difficult to reproduce his / her touch.

Practice makes all the difference. It's funny, here in China, many kids can't write by hand anymore, as all the writing is done on cellphones and computers, which support pinyin(the romanisation of Mandarin). Although, writing Chinese characters is WAY harder than the western letters. I also write in italic cursive. It was mandatory for us to learn from grade school.

I have been trying I improve my writing for some time now, I'm glad I'm not the only one.

So is the book worth it? My handwriting is actually one of the only things I am self conscious of. I have a $600 pen, but can barely use it. Go figure.

It isn't a fountain pen, so it's not that pen pornish. it is a typical Mont Blanc with a diamond in the crown.

Today I'm stuck using a $30 Lamy fountain pen with an italic nib that borders ever so slightly towards calligraphy when I'm paying attention to my form. But even then, it's like saying I'm 'stuck in Paris' or London which is really not an ordeal despite the choice of words. It uses ink rather quickly, though but that just means I might use up one of these ink bottles in the next year or two.

LAMY is good for practice, it's enough.

Yep...worth it! It really is all about practice...and the book makes that easy. Stash the book in your desk and spend 10-15 minutes a day at it and you will see some good results in a couple weeks.

do you write in the book or photocopy the practice pages?

It's amazing how fast your writing deteriorates when you don't do it for a while. My cursive was getting half way decent and now I'm back to not being able to read the chicken scratch that I call writing. I think I'm going to make it a point to keep a journal and try to right something each day.

LAMY is what I have.
