Dovetail Calligraphy specializes in the early American form of ornamental penmanship called Spencerian Script.  It was created by Platt Rogers Spencer (1800-1864) of New York. By the 1850's schools and businesses alike used Spencer's handwriting style as the standard.  The Golden Age of Ornamental Penmanship lasted until 1925 when individuals took the Spencerian style to new artistic endeavors.
