The Zaner-Bloser Penmanship Collection

The University of Scranton's Special Collections Library hosts The Zaner-Bloser, Inc. / Sonya Bloser Monroe Collection, one of the most extensive collections of American ornamental penmanship from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The collection includes professional journals, books and manuals, scrapbooks, penmanship samples, photographs, correspondence, ephemera, publication mockups, and a wide variety of original works by master penmen.

A small but growing portion of the collection has been digitized and made available here. Additional items from the collection will be continually added as they are scanned and described by Weinberg Memorial Library faculty and staff.
