Beautiful Handwriting, Lettering and Calligraphy - Smashing MagazineAdvertisement Handwriting seems to have lost some of its attraction over the last years. Nobody writes beautiful handwritten letters, and uses digital means of communication with smileys, abbreviations and standard lettering instead. And that’s a pity.
