One of the most significant casualties of the digital age has been the exceptional skill of handwriting, and the chances to show off someone’s artsy and satisfyingly precise script decrease by the day. When was the last time that you picked up a pen?
While calligraphy continues to flourish in the forms of wedding and event invitations, font design and typography, having nice handwriting doesn’t get that much social credit anymore. Fortunately, for people who are blessed with natural talent or have worked hard on their craft, there is space on the web where others will still appreciate you! In the subreddit penmanshipporn, for instance, scribes come together to share and enjoy the aesthetic value of their pen productions.
Scroll down below to see a list of satisfyingly neat and beautiful handwriting for your viewing pleasure.
