Handwriting is a lost art. Nothing proves that more than a brief look at the talent of Louis Madarasz, a Texas born calligrapher who would go on to become one of the greatest penmen the world had ever known. One Kalamazoo Reddit contributor, pbiscuits, came upon this lovely example of Madarasz's work. According to pbiscuits, this example of Madarasz's work comes from:

Kalamazoo 1

...the International Association of Master Penman, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting. There's no date on this work, but he lived from 1859 to 1910, so I'm guessing he penned this sometime between 1880-1910.
