Comment:        Re: SHK 13.0590 Re: Shakespeare's Will

Philip Tomposki asks, logically enough, whether "a handwriting expert
has ever compared the Will to Hand D in "Thomas More"?"

I have a related question:  did people in the Renaissance ever have more
than one type of handwriting?  I hope that this isn't as silly as it
sounds.  Certainly friends of mine both write and print, and their
writing and printing often look quite different.  In an age of secretary
and italic hands, could a writer not have more than one way of writing?
Need all the handwriting samples therefore resemble one another?

Cheers,
Se
