Free penmanship resources

masgrimes archive

The Masgrimes Archive aims to acquire, scan, and freely distribute important specimens and publications relating to the topics of: Engrossing, Lettering, Calligraphy, Designing, Pen Art, and American Penmanship.

It is our privilege to present the documents on this page for your study. We expect the reader to understand that the contents contained in this collection are the products of tireless effort by other penmen and respect them accordingly.

We are merely custodians of the pieces of history within our posession. We believe that it is our duty to protect them with tenacity and vigor before happily passing them to future generations for safekeeping.
