Simple. Classic. The beautiful handwriting of your mother. Madelinette is inspired by Palmer Method which was introduced to the US in 1894 as a modern alternative to Spencerian. The method won many awards including the Gold Medals at the Panama Pacific Expo of 1915 and the Sesquicentennial Expo in 1926. This disciplined style set the standard of cursive penmanship for decades of American schoolchildren.
