Where to get lined practice paper?



Recommended Posts

Mysterious Mose

In order to improve my handwriting, I'm going through two exercise books: Michael Sull's "American Cursive Handwriting" and Austin Palmer's "The Palmer Method of Business Writing."  The former includes practice sheets but the latter doesn't.  In lesson 32, page 70, Mr. Palmer writes "As there are six-sixteenths of an inch between the rule lines in the practice paper generally used, and in all the the Palmer Method practice paper... ."

 

So, where do I get this 3/8" paper or "Palmer Method practice paper?"  Also, what is Seyes paper?  Where do I get French-ruled Clairefonte paper or notebooks?

 

I wrote to Michael Sull and asked him what is the spacing on his Clairefontaine Tablets but didn't receive any response.  I also wrote to John Neal Books asking about the spacing of guidelines in their P76 Strathmore Writing Pad, lined, P35 Clairefontaine Lined Pad; and P86 Logos Calligraphy Copperplate Pad, but again didn't receive any response.

 

I don't have access to a printer so I would like to buy paper with guidelines (and maybe 52 degree or 55 degree lines) on it.

Call John Neal Books.  I always receive excellent service when I call them.

Disclaimer: I haven't dealt with The Writing Desk or Goulet Pens myself before, and do not take those as my recommendations. I have dealt with Amazon.com aplenty, and would be happy to buy from it again. The Clairefontaine Séyès-ruled books I have were bought from some bricks-and-mortar bookstore when I was in Germany.

 

 

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
