With all the technology surrounding us today, you probably don’t think much about your handwriting. In fact, it’s pretty much obsolete today. But long ago, before typewriters started making things easy, penmanship was extremely important and many people pursued occupation in the field.

Fortunately, there are still a few people dedicated to keeping the craft alive. Twelve people to be exact. They are known as the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting, and their skills are very impressive!

Jake Weidmann is one of only 12 living master penmen.
