national handwriting day.

John Hancock famous for his bold handwriting signed the first American declaration of independence. His big bold writing could be because he was so near-sighted he was legally blind. America honors him by commemorating his birthday as the national handwriting day.
Coming to think of it; it is pretty necessary with the advent of computers and emails we have forgotten the art of lettering.
Handwriting not only reveals your personality, future, whatever it is also a form of creative art.
Some interesting thing we could do is probably bake a cake and get every one to sign the icing. Or have an evening analyzing each others handwriting.
According to WIMA, National Handwriting Day is a chance for all of us to re-explore the purity and power of handwriting.”
This holiday was launched in 1977 for obvio

us reasons to promote writing tools. 

  1. Thanks for reminding people about this important day.

    During 2013, as a part of a literary art project, I am composing one handwritten letter per day and mailing it to anybody who asks, free. Two of my goals are to bring handwriting back into the world, and to connect people in this all-but-lost way.

    In less than three weeks — thank you, Internet — the Letter A Day project has reached 26 states in the U.S., plus Canada, Denmark, Australia, Finland, Ireland, the United Kingdom, India, Germany, Malaysia and South Africa. Requests are still tumbling in from territories all over, but there’s room for more. Should I end up with more than 365 requests by the end of the year, I’ll just keep going.

    Each recipient gets an original, somewhat newsy, most likely meandering but sincere letter, such as he or she might once upon a time have gotten from a friend or relative.

    If you or any of your friends would like a letter, please visit my website ( — where I am not trying to sell anything, as you’ll see, just keeping the requests in one place — and scroll to the “email me” button at the bottom of the page. Send me your postal address. That’s all you have to do. 🙂 And please spread the word.

    There’s also a Facebook page, public to Facebook users:
