We love the act handwriting; the tools involved, the things it can create. The flick of the wrist and positioning of the hand to create a tactile projection of one’s ideas and passions. How one’s pen seduces the page of their notebook with every crossed T, dotted I, and leaning accent. We think that our fans would agree, when we say that it is one of the most personal and pleasurable actions of our daily lives.
On January 23rd we will celebrate Handwriting Day, a holiday solely dedicated to your very unique and individualistic script, for the second year. On that day, we ask you to free yourselves from the QWERTY keyboards and bridge the gap between your thoughts and social media updates using your pens and styluses. Share your handwritten musings on Twitter and Instagram using #mHDay and #HandwritingDay.
Friends of Moleskine, like Airbnb founder, Joe Gebbia, and Seth Combs, co-founder of Sol Republic have already submitted handwritten posts of their own: http://imgur.com/a/Y1nsi
