My GP writes notes straight onto the computer, and I’ve seen students try to keep up with lectures by typing on an ipad. In these days of cheap laser jet printing, where even the smallest of businesses can usually afford to type up their signs, and there are few spaces left for public displays of handwriting. Where I see them, I like to keep a record.

The London winebar has its menus handwritten, it’s a form of distinction don’t you know.

The writing’s a different size, and is made with different material to that used on adverts and pub menus. Liquid chalk pens are easy to use, it’s the writing on a vertical surface that’s hard.
