What is normally the size of those letters? How small can Spencerian get before it loses its characteristics?
Would it be feasible to use Spencerian strokes with a #2 pencil on college-ruled paper and fit a reasonable amount of words on a line? I'm considering adopting Spencerian as my handwriting. I am aware there would be some loss of line variation.
Spencerian Script is often written very small. Historically, 1.5mm x height wasn't uncommon.
'Business Writing' derived from Spencerian Script, and as the monoline version, is a beautiful writing style in its own right. It's ideal for handwriting with a pencil. Here's a small example which I wrote with a normal, round- tipped fountain pen. If you want to see this script at its very best, look for 'Modern Business Penmanship' by E C Mills on the www.iampeth.com site.
