The Lost Art of Penmanship
"Most schools are no longer required to teach cursive writing, and many do not. Their logic is simple: Children no longer need handwriting. Modern communication is done with a keyboard -- email, text messages, what have you. Cursive is a useless art."
Very sad. : (
The background of antique books is from an auction catalogue. The hand holding the pen and Quink ink bottle are from a vintage magazine advertisement. I have been cutting out fountain pens for some time now so I threw a couple more in for good measure.
