That’s also why I believe in handwriting. We can all learn to type. (For many of us, that’s the only way to get words on a screen, words to ourselves, words to each other.) The tremor of the moment, your intake of breath, the shiver of the downstroke, the distraction between letters – all those are lost when we owe our letterforms to typing skills, and not to pen in warm hand, dancing on paper.
A wonderful post about the making of a beautiful pen. But, the sentiment above really spoke to me.
