hand writing

I want to create a typeface (OTF) based upon the handwriting of my Grandmother. She has beautiful handwriting. What I am wondering is if there is some resource out there outlining a list of particular words or a paragraph, that I should have her write in order to understand the relationship between specific letters (i.e. ss, th, tt, ing, etc.). My thought is that there may be a paragraph (or more) of text that she can write down and that I can study in order to learn and create the typeface. Any insight on how I might go about starting this would be great! Thanks!

Left Handed Design

So, I've begun designing a typeface which mimics left handed characteristics. The way I see it I have two options: create a curled hand (crabclaw) or an uncurled hand.

Some characteristics include a reversed ductus for the "curled" hand.

If it is uncurled, which is the the way I'm leaning (pun intended) I am also considering a left leaning "roman" to incorporate the left leaning writing that occurs when writing on a horizontal page. Currently I am working towards this left leaning "roman" (is that the right term?) and a more upright italic. Because the strokes are pushed in this situation, I am considering a contrast that thins proportionately from the start of the upstroke.

SO

Please help me to identify the attached cursive font, grabbed from a 1950's themed website...I love the 'B's...! Couldnt inset image unfortunately- kept getting error...

Thank you!

I'm looking for the original font that may have served as the basis for the font "Nelio" shown below. Any ideas?

Nelio can be found here: https://www.fontfont.com/fonts/nelio

I've tried what the font and dafont..cant locate this

Can anyone help identify this face please? Many thanks
