Unlike the Flanders area, Belgium’s Walloon region of favors a calligraphic style that is visibly rooted in the traditional French cursive. Books by French publishers, such as Editions Magnard and Editions Bordas, are readily available in bookstores and classrooms in the southern French-speaking regions of Belgium. These books showcase the upright cursive letters of the Méthode Dumont, which is arguably the most popular primary school handwriting style in France.
The Éventail Écriture series presents a writing model targeted to the French-speaking region of the country.
Notably, local publisher VAN IN also offers two series of books tailored for the Walloon region: Éventail Écriture (Writing Fan, Notebooks 1A and 1B) and the calligraphy book series called Mon livret d’écriture. The letters in these series of books are structurally similar to those of the Méthode Dumont but do not rely on the Seyes Lines grid system and as a consequence, its ascenders and descenders are shorter. They feature an upright continuous cursive with looped extenders, showcasing round shapes and ornamental upper cases.
