Way way back writing used to be a real job. There were no computers that did everything but the human hand wrote hours and hours and page after page and all of that with an old-fashioned dip pen and ink. Writing a book was a monks jobit took months to make just one book. All that was done in a beautiful graceful way; the art of calligraphy.

After the invention of the printing press the writing professions slowly becoming redundant. Since 1850 the interest in calligraphy revived. First as a hobby, but gradually calligraphy developed itself to an independent art form and now it is again quite hip to create beautiful hand-lettering.
