Do not despair yet - writing is still alive and kicking (for now)

With the unstoppable onward march of technology, I worry that writing will one day die out completely. And the amazing art of penmanship that has been around for centuries is quickly becoming extinct as masters pass away and fewer and fewer decide to take their place.

But do not despair just yet. Introducing Jake Weidmann, the youngest master penman in the United States. He is just one of twelve people left in the world to hold the title of master penman, a talent that demonstrates something as simple as handwriting can be hauntingly beautiful.
