Handwriting might seem like a somewhat obscure or unusual topic for a thread, so bare with me.
On the internet we very rarely see another's handwriting; the most expression we get in terms of characters is ASCII art (which I hasten to add is awesome) and I remember once the headmaster of my primary school declaring handwriting a dying art, he didn't say it in forlorn terms, just as a factual statement (in fact he seemed quite happy about it...).
Considering that this is an art forum and that many of us sketch it may be interesting to see attitudes towards handwriting, maybe even written examples of it in the form of scans, photos, etc. Are there people here who treat each word like an individual drawing and try and put some flourish into their words? Are there people here who can barely remember the last time they actually wrote something by hand?
Oh, and of course Hieroglyphics and Oriental characters are more than welcome in the discussion, as well as non-Latin scripts (Cyrillic, yay!).
