of American Penmanship

My Friends,

Welcome to The Masgrimes Archive of American Penmanship. I hope you find the contents as useful and inspiring as I have.

Upon receipt of some of my first specimens, I was introduced an important concept: we are mere custodians of these historic items while they are in our possession. With the right care and planning, these books and specimens will long outlive us. Please join me in appreciating them for their merits and excusing their faults. They have been invaluable in my progress as a 21st-century penman.
