Summary
In a world seemingly dominated by keyboards, it's good to remember the beauty and individuality of our own handwriting.

National Handwriting Day got its start back in 1977, when educators began to grow concerned that the art of handwriting was becoming less common among adults.

The Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) took it upon itself to do something about it and created the day.

The date chosen was the birthday of John Hancock (b. 1737), whose signature dominated the Declaration of Independence, and whose name has entered the language as a byword for handwriting.
