Spencerian principle #2

Being sick is something that happens to us all at one time or another. Nothing like a cold to make you slam on the breaks while you are barreling down the highway that is your hobby. Nevertheless I persist, even if barely enough to get through the daily grind and make the practice sheet for the second Spencerian principle and this post this week. Are you as sick of being sick as I am? Apologies for the deviation — back to the topic at hand.

Spencerian principle #2 the right curve, it is usually made on the connective slant of 30 degrees. “It is to be noted that the principles are subject to various modifications in forming letters”. Excerpt from the Mott Media Theory of the Spencerian system of practical penmanship.

If you take a close look at the Spencerian minuscules (the lowercase letters) the second principle will be utilized to write the following: b, c, e, f, h, I, j, k, l, p, r, s, t, u & w. Upon closer examination it looks like the letters b, f, h, k, l, p & t are as the aforementioned excerpt suggest. They have various modifications and as far as I can tell it looks as if they are slight deviations from the specified 30 degree slant. Interesting how its the taller letters that are bending the rule. Oh and before I forget here is the Spencerian principle 2 practice sheet — Happy practicing.
