Product description

Review

"A witty and readable (and fetchingly illustrated and glossed) excursion through the history of handwriting." --The Wall Street Journal

"This is a book every writer would love, a curio cabinet on the art and act of writing." --AMY TAN, author of Saving Fish from Drowning

"[H]ighly enjoyable...witty and often endearingly autobiographical." --MICHAEL DIRDA, Washington Post

"[A] charming, illustrated eulogy to a craft that's fast losing its place in the modern world." --Financial Times

"Florey's argument is nostalgic yet pragmatic. 'It seems wrong, ' she says, 'when something beautiful, useful, and historically important vanishes.' Charmingly composed and handsomely presented, Script and Scribble just might provoke a handwriting revival." --Boston Globe

"Florey lovingly traces the history of handwriting, from its ancient birth to its imminent demise."
--SAM ANDERSON, New York Magazine

"[A] winsome mix of memoir and call to arms...an entertaining history." --Editor's Choice, Chicago Tribune

"Part memoir, part meticulously researched primer [this] captivating history of handwriting is a lovely ode to a nearly lost art." --Ready Made

"""...a witty and readable (and fetchingly illustrated and glossed) excursion through the history of handwriting..."" Cullen Murphy, The Wall Street Journal "
