Although handwriting is one of mankind's greatest cultural achievements, written communication today means mostly typing into computers and mobile devices. However, scientists stress that the brain benefits from writing by hand. The author, an acclaimed calligrapher and teacher of penmanship, addresses herself to all those who don't even use pen and paper for their shopping list, but would like to try it (again).

Based on scientifically proven methods for cognitive activities, this title discovers and promotes the creative potential of handwriting – and to put it into practice right away on the pages of the book. Well-founded and very colorful, inspiring and yet structured: at the end there is the joy of expressing oneself by means of a personal mark, in a form that is even pleasant to look at. Furthermore, there is also the understanding that handwriting is much more than just the graphic transcription of language, going to the origin of the need for expression.
