Praise from parents, physicians, authors, and calligraphers
Inga and Barbara deserve the thanks of every teacher and every parent. It’s a breakthrough at last!
Betty Edwards, Ph.D., Author of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
Write Now by Barbara Getty and Inga Dubay is the best book on italic handwriting — or any handwriting — I’ve come across. Handsomely handwritten, wondrously clear, easy to use, and even witty, Write Now is the perfect resource for anyone who wants to learn Italic or (as I did) improve a deteriorated script.
Kitty Burns Florey, author Script & Scribble: The Rise and Fall of Handwriting, The Lost Art of Diagramming Sentences, and more.
I assumed Spencerian script was superior because of its stunning visual quality. However, after having spent a while developing a somewhat Spencerian hand, I’m abandoning it in favor of the Getty-Dubay school.
Bull Garlington, author of “Analog Attorney”
I have used the Getty-Dubay Italic Handwriting System for nine years with five of my children and am thrilled with the precision and easy to read style they have learned. Each child has beautiful legible handwriting, each with their own personality, but distinctly Italic in form. After seeing the results, I started practicing my own handwriting the GDI way right along side of them!
Wendy Shaw, Medical Professional
When one consciously chooses to communicate, this remarkable script forces the writer to think more clearly, fostering greater mental discipline and organization. Italic handwriting is legible and handsome – I find it soul-satisfying. I recommend Write Now – the book to use. Long live legibility!
Paul O. Jacobs, M.D.
If you take [Italic Letters: Calligraphy and Handwriting] and do what they tell you to do, you will end up with a very nice italic hand.
Jean Heidenreich, Instructor and Professional Calligrapher
I have heard several doctors in the Houston area that attended your workshop RAVE about what a good time they had and how effective it was in improving their handwriting.
Janice Hutsell, Medical Professional
There is a sense of quality of life as you begin to see your handwriting take the form of something beautiful.
Michael Wong, 3rd grade teacher
For learning the Italic hand this may now be THE workbook.
