Dreaming in Engrosser’s Script

When I began pursuing Engrosser’s Script, I committed myself to focusing on its foundational elements from the ground up, obsessing over them, refining them, and inviting them into every part of my world. Two years later, I’ve settled on a codified writing system that I believe provides an efficient and modular model for learning the essence of not only Engrosser’s Script, but Roundhand Writing as a whole.

Engrosser’s Script is defined by its dominating, chiseled appearance and effortless beauty. My system utilizes principals taught by many of the past Masters who contributed to The Business Educator and The Zanerian Manual of Alphabets and Engrossing, alongside concepts and theories of my own.
