There’s a lot of buzz on the school circuit these days about whether or not to teach cursive anymore. 1 side claims that it is obsolete in the era of typing and texting; yet another (myself included) asserts that the personal touch and artistic virtue of a beautifully handwritten note deserve to be performed on.
I can’t predict how the discussion will shake away. But in the meantime, I thought I would celebrate the distinctive grace and human flair that handwriting could add to interiors. Which ones inspire you to bring a dash of script to your property?
