This book is hidden on the Zaner-Bloser website so you will want to place your order for it by calling 614.486.0221 or typing this address into your internet browser: http://shop.zaner-bloser.com/p-905-self-instruction-in-handwriting.aspx (slashes, dashes, and periods are all important when you type it). The book is consumable, but keep it in your school room every year of high school as the core reference book for the cursive penmanship practice associated with the academy's English Mechanics courses.
