How’s your hand writing?
I listened to Philip Hensher chatting about the dying art of handwriting on Start the Week last week and have now just stumbled across his blind analysis of certain famous people’s penmanship.
Guess whose handwriting (above) he describes as ‘a bit sad and babyish’? That’s one Barack Obama.
I’m definitely with the Hensher on the next one, those mid-word capital R’s are mental.
He concluded that the writer is not used to people saying ‘no’ to them. Beyonce, it turns out.
I know when I sit down to write it just feels a lot slower than rattling words off on a keyboard, editing quickly as you go. But I do still write the odd letter and thank you card and I love to receive them. Do you think hand writing is a dying art? Do you ever write postcards from holidays?
