In these days of a thousand fonts in your word processor, who needs calligraphy? All the same, calligraphy ranks in the top 3 of most useful things I've ever learnt at school: it greatly improved my handwriting and my right hand coordination, which in turn improved my drawing. I love it: for some reason I write a lot easier with pen in hand than at a computer.

I love how you can see what's underneath it, which combined with the text gets a very different appearance.
