cursive handwriting art

The Writing Instrument Association in America are celebrating January 23 as the National Handwriting Day in an effort to revive that dying art of handwriting.

Some ink bloggers who are celebrating the Handwriting day include GBM, Sumocat and Rodney.

So let’s celebrate – step away from the computer keyboard, pick a pen or pencil and write something.
