In my search for a quality cursive handwriting curriculum, I found a website that has collected an incredible number of calligraphy and penmanship curriculums and books from decades ago.
Many of the books are available as free downloadable pdfs, while others can be viewed exclusively online. You can view their entire index of calligraphy and penmanship lessons here.
These are my favorites for cursive handwriting. I'm most interested in the Palmer method, and these books teach the Palmer method or a similar style.
- Palmer Method of Business Writing (available as a pdf)
- Palmer's Penmanship Budget (available as a pdf)
- A Complete Compendium of Plain Practical Penmanship (available as a pdf)
