Yes, ballpoints force you to write in their own way, if only because of the great force involved.

Morgaine, Yes! That's the toilet paper we had in Denmark in the early 50s. I've never met anybody else who knows about it. It was indeed useful for other things.

Yazeh, I don't know. lol But it seems that on this forum at least, that writing with a fountain pen is done in a certain way. A few years back, say 60 years ago. People just wrote.

I liked the f, looking like a used empty staple on its side, or an 8 flattened vertically
New 15:24
That script makes me cringe
New 15:33
how do you get on in the written thread?
New 17:36
I like that script
New 17:37
I know it's very primary school, but it has possibilities
New 17:37
especially with a flex nib
New 17:37
for everyday writing, it is a bit easier than english roundhand
New 17:40
people on FPG has all kinds of writing, personalised, very close to offical script styles, 1950s style non-cursive writing
New 17:41
I guess cursive only means the slanting, but not the fluent connecting of the letters
New 18:21
I don't think so. I think cursive needs some connections. I'm not sure. Would you call the standard draftman letters, which are slanted, cursive?

"This is because Copperplate is visually a cursive hand, one in which the letters are connected to one another." —Eleanor Winters, ‹Italic and Copperplate Calligraphy: The Basics and Beyond›, p33

yes, I loked it up already

Interesting that in many writeups it is "claimed" to be faster. They don't actually say that it is.

New 08:57
I guess you don't spend much on heating, but more on un-heating.
New 08:59
minus 7C outside here. Cat came in a 4:30, had a snack, and went right outside again. He doesn't mind the cold.
New 09:10
Long haired or short haired?

medium haired in the summer, and long in the winter. I've got a fur mat that came off him last spring, and it's about the size of a small cat. lol
New 10:10
