My grandmother has some of the most beautiful penmanship I have ever seen. Her handwritten letters are something that I’ve always cherished, especially now that our world is becoming increasingly overrun by technology.
For centuries, the wealthy and educated were recognized by their ability to create gorgeous handwriting on paper.
But these days, handwriting and calligraphy are a dying art form. The act of putting pen to paper is happening less frequently. People would rather reach for a MacBook or iPad to communicate or design.
However, the study of handwriting, called graphology, takes a while to master. It also takes passion. Just ask Jake Weidmann. He has a job you probably didn’t even know existed. He’s a master penman and a member of the International Association of Master Penman, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting, or IAMPETH for short.
Weidmann makes a living doing exactly what he loves, slowly and methodically creating beautiful characters by hand. He has the ability to transform a piece of paper into a mind blowing work of art. Even his signature is remarkable.
Of course, these incredible skills didn’t come without hard work. He spent many years learning and perfecting his talent.
Check out this video and get a glimpse into his life as a master penman.
