    It's a lovely piece - grasps, as few articles do, the essence of what we do when we write with a fountain pen.

    But I couldn't help smiling when I saw the journalist's day job: obituaries editor :-)

    Indeed.

    Thank you, catbert. Great article! I keep a small collection of these on the demise (and resurrection) of cursive writing.
