Brigitta Falk’s book series Handskrift (2010) features stavskrift, the cursive style developed by Jakob Rask Arnesen (1918-2008) and Sigrun Nygaard Moriggi in 1973, in a new typeface family called Norsk Stavskrift designed by Ida Nygaard in 2010. Both Arnesen and Moriggi’s original work, and this typeface family were developed for the book publisher H. Aschehoug & Co.

In first grade, uppercase and lowercase trykkskrift, or simplified print is taught; it has unconnected letters. In the middle of the second year or beginning of the third, students learn stavskrift, which has joining strokes between letters.
Norsk Stavskrift shows a modern cursive style, some with some features borrowed from continuous cursive writing, especially in letters such as the b, p and s. It is slanted, its lowercase letters are semi-joined and have a slanted oval as their foundational form. It has regular x-height and medium extenders. The uppercase has two styles or variants: simple cursive or simplified print style forms.
