If you are the sort of person who appreciates nice paper, a decent pen, a well-crafted notebook, a solid pencil, writing and receiving handwritten correspondence, beautiful handwriting, or the clicky-clack of a dependable typewriter, you have come to the right place. The Cramped is a site dedicated to the pleasures of writing with analog tools (the name is purposefully ironic).

The typeface used in the header is Mike Rohde’s Sketchnote Typeface and may be purchased at Delve Fonts.

If you have any questions, requests, ideas, or other concerns email always works at patrick@patrickrhone.com or, true to the spirit of this site, feel free to send me handwritten correspondence:
