On Handwriting


What others have said about The History and Uncertain Future of Handwriting

“As someone whose penmanship began to deteriorate the second she achieved the perfect slant–and who yet persists in the belief that words scrawled on paper in an inimitable hand somehow have more flavor, like a cake baked from scratch, or pesto ground in a mortar–I still have to acknowledge the truth of Anne Trubek’s slyly persuasive argument in The History and Uncertain Future of Handwriting.”– Mary Norris, author of Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen”

“A succinct overview of written communication…Quirky facts enliven a brisk story of the history of handwriting,” –Kirkus Reviews

“Thoroughly enjoyable…Trubek ends her delightful history with the conclusion that handwriting will not vanish but perhaps, like letterpress printing, become a fine art.” —Publishers Weekly

“An absorbing and concise book that will engage readers who are curious about communications.” Library Journal
