Zaner Bloser handwriting vs my italic handwriting style. This was a newsletter that I published years ago about handwriting and how things would look if done in the handwriting style that I liked to use. I went on to made something entirely new in those days — videos of me writing my italic style. I used it for my newsletters and people around the world paid me $10.00 for an annual subscription. We, my wife and I sold handwriting supplies and that is how we made a living working at home out of a room we made from our 2-car garage. I was doing this when I was interviewed for CBS and for the Wall Street Journal and also for a job hosting my 13-week television program, “Calligraphy is Fun.” Those were the days!
