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!

I love calligraphy, can do it freehand with a fine point pen. I'm currently practicing with ink and nibs, using an oblique pen. Not easy! It's an art form, beautiful handwriting. And very satisfying. I'm hoping they bring cursive penmanship back into schools. There's adults out there printing their signature. Everyone can appreciate beautiful handwriting.
