Samples of handwriting styles are available on the Draw Your World website. A search on the Internet for sample images can be broken down into examples, such as handwriting of celebrities or children.
Handwriting styles change over the years, and methods of instruction alter with the fads and fashions of the time and even according to which country the style is taught in. Styles include D'Nealian Manuscript and Cursive, New American Cursive and Zaner-Bloser Continuous Stroke. Handwriting is a very personal thing, and although a style may be taught to students in school, each person adapts the style slightly to form a unique handwriting.
