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!

This is the handwriting of Nepalese Yr 8 student Prakriti Malla which was recognised as the most beautiful handwriting in the world. Prakriti Malla is a class eight scholar and she is now global well-known due to her handwriting. a few months in the past, someone from Nepal posted a picture of her handwriting on social media and, very quickly, the whole world became speaking about her. rakriti Malla’s handwriting looks as if a font instantly from the computer. the gap among the letters is uniform. furthermore, she has introduced a new stage of calligraphy. Even professionals say that her writing could be very near being ideal and that is the motive why her handwriting changed into selected as the nice handwriting in Nepal.

This handwriting is a form of "D'Nealian" - which is an easy way to teach "manuscript"(printing) which has "curved" lettering rather than block(straight lines). Young children will intrinsically draw an arc or curved line instead of a straight one. Once D'Nealian manuscript is mastered, it is simple to connect the letters by adding curves or loops to transition to Cursive. My children learned D'Nealian in elementary school. So - why did we change?

I’m guessing she took her time for this paper/essay with the more traditional handwriting from the time before printers: when the monks etc. would write the books by hand. I don’t tink she writes like this all the time. It’s just a guess though, my appologies to her if this beautiful and disciplined handwriting is her actual every-day handwriting.

That is beautiful handwriting, and I am envious of this skill! It's truly beautiful. I think I found a spelling error in the 2nd paragraph, the last line. Not sure--and I'm NOT trying to be a spelling nazi, but I was a proof-reader in my last job and I cannot help but notice errors, sometimes. Apologies if I am wrong--and I truly hope I AM wrong! Or I just made a big fool and a** out of myself. I still want to learn to have amazing handwriting like this, but in this day and age, I don't really use much pen/pencil and paper anymore. It's all about typing things now.... handwriting might be a skill that we lose in the future. Let's hope not!

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 :-)
