Spencerian or American script is justifiably the American historical and cultural heritage. This script featuring several types and even more variations, is notable for its special elegance and flutter – light and airy in lower case, boldly contract in upper case, weight-free and strict in business handwriting, with open and floaty flourishing. Similar to Copperplate, Spencerian employs pointed pen and oblique holder for convenience.
