Getty-Dubay Italic offers eleven books
to bring legibility, beauty and ease to the everyday experience of handwriting.
The Getty-Dubay handwriting program for children is the Getty-Dubay Italic Handwriting Series, which includes seven developmentally appropriate workbooks and accompanying Instruction Manual. These books are in use in schools and thousands of homes across America and abroad.
From their decades of experience helping adults change and improve their handwriting, Getty and Dubay created the self-guided instruction book, Write Now: The Getty-Dubay Program for Handwriting Success which has been used by over 4,500 medical professionals across the United States, and tens of thousand of other adults and professionals.
The legacy of the authors’ mentors in calligraphy, including that of Lloyd J. Reynolds, is in evidence in all their books, especially in the calligraphy instruction book for adults, Italic Letters. Inga Dubay recently created Getty-Dubay’s newest book, Getty-Dubay Italic Calligraphy: for School & Home as a companion to the Italic Handwriting Series. This book is the product of an unique program at Reed College to bring calligraphy into elementary school classrooms (read more here).
All Getty-Dubay Italic books contain handwritten models. The USA editions of our books and supplementary materials are printed with soy or low VOC inks on paper with recycled content and sustainably harvested wood fibers, and are manufactured in the USA. These Getty-Dubay Italic books and materials are distributed by our friends at Allport Editions. International Editions are printed on demand via IngramSpark for international wholesale orders and Lulu for international retail orders. Books sold via Lulu are printed on FSC-certified paper.
