 Mr. Jaypee Reyes  at the C& E Bookstore  booth . For a minimum book purchase, one can have a FREE handwriting consultation. He is the current President and CEO of Handwriting Master Analysis of the Philippines ( HandMAP)

I quickly notice his presence at the C& E booth because of one hobby that connects our group (Handwriting !) Being a stamp collector( philatelist) we always promote the art of writing letters . Some of the older members of our stamp club would collect letters purposely because of their  beautiful handwriting. or Calligraphy . Some teachers and even stamp collectors would develop some attributes to know one’s personality thru their penmanship.
