MANUAL OF GRAPHOLOGY

by J. Peugeot, A. Lombard and M. de Noblens

THE MANUAL OF GRAPHOLOGY first appeared in France in 1986. It was quickly established as a classic in Europe and is already on its 5th reprint.

In their own words, the authors "have endeavoured to define what constitutes the raw material of graphology, that is, the signs (handwriting characteristics) classified in their different categories for teaching purposes". We have given their interpretations, showing their interrelationships, the importance of the graphic context and of the developmental and sociocultural aspect of handwriting.

The book is divided into 14 chapters, each one dealing with a separate aspect of handwriting, such as Stroke, Form, Dimension, Movement, Continuity, Speed, Harmony etc. and constantly stresses the importance of their interrelation. Chapter 14 deals with left-handed writings, which have been the subject of much research and debate over the years and reaches interesting conclusions.

Jacqueline Peugeot is President of the leading French Society of Graphology, as well as a trained child psychologist and consultant to various clinics, notably the Claude Bernard Institute in Paris. Arlette Lombard is Vice-President of the Society and Madeleine de Noblens runs her own graphological practice, specialising in the handwriting of children and adolescents. All three hold the diploma of the Groupement de Graphologues Conseil de France.

The Manual of Graphology is a model of clarity, rigorous yet entertaining to read, and an indispensable handbook for all graphologists and all those who are curious to know how and why graphology works.
