30 Beautiful Calligraphy GIFs You Can’t Stop Watching

It’s very rare to find nice handwriting nowadays. It’s even rarer to find someone who’s well-versed in the art of calligraphy. Gone are the days when notebooks looked less like a bunch of pages written in Morse Code and more like eye candy. This is understandable, in a way; with how far technology has come, touch-typing makes it possible to type out thoughts and important notes faster than if one were to write it down. Handwriting has become a lost art.

The good news is that there are still creatives peeps out there who are keeping the "ancient" the craft of beautiful manual writing alive. Cursive writing, typography, and calligraphy are turning into beautiful works of art. And for the rest of us, we get to enjoy their masterful display of great penmanship. Here are 30 gifs for your enjoyment, and I promise you – it’s difficult to stop watching.
