PREFACE



Writing should be plain and rapid. The business world demands it. Slow
вЦ†writing is out of date, and illegible writing is inexcusable, annoying, and dangerous.
A good handwriting being now within the reach of all, a poor one is a disgrace.

Copybooks and vertical writing have fostered form at the expense of freedom,
and slow, cramped finger movement writing has resulted. Speed and muscular
movement theories have fostered freedom at the expense of form, and reckless,
scrawling, illegible writing has been the rule.

Form without freedom is of little value, and freedom without form is folly.
Form and freedom must go hand in hand or failure follows.

The Arm Movement Method of Rapid Writing is based upon form and move-
ment, neither being sacrificed as both are absolutely essential to success. The
work is so planned and graded that form and movement for the first time are
developed together successfully and scientifically from the beginning, the simple
preceding and leading to the complex.

To simplify the learning, insure le gibility , facilitate execution, and develop the
highest possible sgead, the forms have been so simplified and constructed that the
maximum of ease, plainness, and speed is attained.

For the first time we have simpleness of form without slowness of execution;
plainness without stiffness, as in the vertical; and freedom without -ecklessness.

Simplicity of form is essential in order that all may acquire the art. For
simple forms not only mean ease in reading, but ease in execution, as well as the
highest possible speed. Ease in acquisition and execution, plainness in form, and
rapidity in writing are the essentials of successful writing, and the Arm Movement
Method comprises the same to a greater degree than any other.

The copies were all written freely, even rapidly, with the peu and not drawn
slowly for the sake of accuracy. They are therefore practical rather than technical,
and serve to illustrate not only form but movement as well.
