Computers, email, and smart phones are making our handwriting obsolete — a lost art. Even our signatures can be digitally created nowadays.

In college, I took a hand lettering class.
It allowed us to see how each letter we made in italic calligraphy had thin and thick strokes as we formed them. Most of the class was spent just using the pencil and holding it on an angle and drawing slanted lines across the lined paper over and over again.
I may not have liked it but also recognized how important it was to acquire this basic skill. Only when we had the basic strokes of each letter down were we allowed to graduate to a real pen and ink. Our final at the end of the semester was being able to do the complete alphabet and numbers from in the traditional italic calligraphy style as well as a modern lettering alphabet that we created ourselves.
