Friday Fun Facts
Cursive is a type of penmanship in which letters are connected or flow into one another. In contrast, print handwriting separates each individual letter. Cursive evolved from Italic calligraphy and was intended to make writing faster by limiting how many times you would have to lift a quill. Beautiful penmanship was a valuable skill until the 1920s because all legal and government documents and business correspondence were written in longhand.
