Ok, I know that this comment is very late for this post. But I first read this post at work and the ability to comment was blocked (don't rat me out to the man.)

I LOVE script. I LOVE my finger bump. I know I'm young and probably the last generation to have such a bump. But my love of writing and books and paper and beautiful handwritten things came from my mother. Hopefully I can pass it on to my future children someday too. Or at least some school kid some place.

Thanks for the review!

I like Florey's book about diagramming. I liked reading it through. This book sounds interesting, although I admit I'm a computer person through and through. I don't like writing by hand. Ever. I have awful handwriting.

Sadly my fountain pens now dry up between each attempt to use them, making it even more of an effort. Like you I'm not a Luddite - what blogger could be - but I often feel the need to pick up a pen. Indeed, it is a s0urce of humour to those who know us that we both always have a pen and notebook on our person - even in the briefest of clothes. (Well, perhaps not quite the briefest but not far off it!)
