Diverse information about handwriting is spread out among a variety of fields: pedagogy, calligraphy, palaeography, graphic design, even typography and literature. Each one of these fields contributing to the confusion that surrounds the topic. Is it not time for a comprehensive understanding of handwriting? A common language to discuss about it?

I believe that through handwriting it is possible to learn certain things about writing and written language that can’t be grasped in any other way. Handwriting, although not as obviously as before the age of typography, is as relevant as ever.
