One of the biggest casualties of the digital age has been the fine skill of handwriting, and the opportunities to show off one's artsy and satisfyingly precise script are diminishing every day. When was the last time you picked up a pen?

While calligraphy continues to flourish in the forms of wedding and event invitations, fontand typography design, having perfect handwriting doesn't really get you that much social cred anymore. Luckily, for those who are blessed with natural talent or have worked hard on their penmanship, there are places on the internet where you are still appreciated! The subreddit penmanshipporn has long been such a place, where scribes come together to share and celebrate the aesthetic value of their beautiful handwriting.

Following on from a previous post, we here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of satisfyingly neat and creative handwriting examples for your viewing pleasure. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and let us know which hand lettering you've found the most aesthetically pleasing!

    How does he keep it so straight?? If that was me, it would look like a land slide!

    To make beautiful handwriting often requires a great ink pen also. You can tell a lot of these were written with nib pens.

    Once, whilst travelling in Italy and visiting countless wonders of art and architecture, I got sick and tired of the appalling graffiti in all the toilets (I was hosteling and camping) so I drew a large, detailed image of a statue from the Trevi fountain holding a bottle of Smirnoff vodka and wrote 'Inter Rail and Smirnoff leave me breathless'. It would have washed off had anyone ever bothered, but I just thought the city deserved a better class of vandalism :-)

    My question is, do they eyeball the spacing or hold up a ruler to make each line even with the last?
