I used to be a calligrapher, ages and ages ago. At the time, I worked as an architectural draftsperson so I already knew (and was good at) tiny, concise, and neat lettering. It was an easy jump from there to calligraphy. Eventually that thing we used to call “desktop publishing” came around and most people lost interest in have hand-done calligraphy.
But just as fountain pens seem to have having a moment, calligraphy is once again popular. At the calligraphers’ guild table, you could get your name lettered on a bookmark by an obliging gentleman. So I did.

Great lettering, Melinda!
That is a hard font to learn – my efforts at it were, to be very charitable, awful. That guy was good (unlike me).
