Zaner-Bloser penmanship has made it into the media! Check out the Saturday, January 22, 2011 edition of the Scranton Times-Tribune here: http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/the-writing-s-on-the-wall-but-no-one-can-read-it-1.1094003#axzz1BmppKM6P. The print version includes a photograph of our Special Collections Librarian Michael Knies poring over the handwriting samples in the exhibit on the 5th floor of Weinberg Library, in the Heritage Room. CBS Sunday Morning had a segment this Sunday entitled “A Farewell to Handwriting” and listed as “Signing Off”.
