The Art Of Writing And Improving Your Penmanship - Barbara Nichol's New Book Is Worth A Read

Barbara Nichol, the principal of Pen-Ultimate in Sydney's Queen Victoria Building (QVB) , has recently released a book on helping both men and women improve their penmanship. In an age where children are adopting iPads and styluses before crayons and paper, it is important that we teach our children and improve in our own selves the art of penmanship. Being able to put pen to paper coupled with the ability to spell is one of the most impressive skill sets that you can come across in the business world and yet almost every day we are consistently moving from our traditional forms of communication to keyboards and touch pads. The increasing use of predictive text on keyboards and touch pads does forewarn me of a day in the not too distant future when our children or grandchildren will perhaps not be able to communicate via pen to paper in an articulate and legible manner.

This book, therefore, is something of a god-send for those of us who wish to retain our writing skills. The book is available in Pen-Ultimate and if you are lucky enough to catch Barbara on a day when she is in the shop you can ask her to sign it. Watching Barbara Nichol write with her pen is something of a treat in itself.
