Italic Hand example

Historical note:

Developed by the Humanists in the Renaissance as a return to the older Carolingian hands, this italic hand is an inclined, cursive form of the littera antiqua (the basis of modern Roman typefaces today), first used formally in the 1450s in the Papal Chancery. It was first used in England from around 1550, and gradually replaced the Secretary hand as the preferred choice for all purposes.
