Classical Victorian Calligraphy, may I remind you, was developed for the benefit of a people so benighted that they weren't allowed to live on Eurasia proper. Long live the New Improved Swedish Handwrighting Which Looks Alot Like Block Letters that I, my classmates, and apparently nobody else learnt ca 1990. I've not met a single person who uses it since moving from Stenungsund in 1992, except for some old friends from there. andreas
