inspired by jackie's post today i am featuring my handwriting...this was very much grab a marker and scribble quick before photographing e! handwriting is most definitely an interest and a passion for me. jackie got me thinking right back to classes at junior school when we actually had handwriting lessons. we had to draw a guideline on the pages of our books with pencil and a ruler so that we could get the letters all at the same level. i loved that kind of lesson!
i am fascinated by left-handers. when i worked at the post office i had the ideal spot for watching folk scribe. one man in particular had the most exquisite writing. i would see him join the queue. i would try to hold myself back on occasion but found it impossible not to tell him how in awe of his handwriting i was. he would always be embarrassed but equally he always thanked me for noticing. he always used sepia ink and obviously a fountain pen. seriously it was like the stunning calligraphy you see in places like this and this. beautiful. he was probably in his 60s and if i see him about town he will most probably think i'm stalking him!my most favourite style has to be french handwriting. as you may have noticed i have a bit of a thing for amandine at the moment. i even try to imitate it sometimes but i don't think it works unless you really are french!
please do join in.
