explore : national handwriting day

We're a week away from National Handwriting Day and while it's celebrated among pen lovers, it has yet to reach worldwide status.

I love handwriting.  As a calligrapher and a graphologist, I see it as an expression of our own uniqueness.  The letterforms spill first from our brain and then onto a piece of paper as diverse and unique as the writer themselves.

To my surprise, I recently discovered that handwriting is no longer on the curriculum in certain school divisions.  Memories of labouring over my Capital letters in Grade two suddenly feel as antiquated as hearing my grandmother recount stories of churning her own butter.  

And for those of you who still hold an appreciation for handwriting, we have for you beautiful pens of all descriptions and sumptuous paper to write upon.
