Spencerian Workshop with Michael Sull + Penmanship Specimens

Last December I was lucky enough to attend a four-day Spencerian workshop with Michael Sull in Saint-Petersburg. Michael is a great Master Penman, author of several books and a wonderful teacher. It was such an invaluable experience for me to watch Michael's demonstrations and his writing process. Moreover, Michael brought some old calligraphy specimens and let students take pictures of them. With his kind permission, I'm happy to share with you some of the fascinating examples of penmanship.
