Niiice! Looks like real calligraphy to me!

I recently watched Crimson Peak and when the protagonist wrote something with a penholder and nib I was looking very closely to see what nib she was using. I thiiink it was a modern Hiro one though! :o

Prasad, I do think we are all a little bonkers, and like it that way.  ;D (by the way, "Bonkers" was my childhood nickname.)

Funny you should mention that, Garima.  There's a nice example in one of the old Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes adaptations and I'd love to upload it, but the disc is no doubt buried deeply in one of the boxes we haven't unpacked following the move.  Perhaps I should do some ferreting around in the garage.
