I have a little secret - I am a fanatic about beautiful penmanship. (Okay, maybe it's not such a secret but I like to think I'm mysterious somehow.) Whenever I come across nice handwriting (whether it be through work, in a publication or from ephemera), I'll either make photocopies of it, rip it out or buy it so that I can admire it at a later time. Thankfully, my fondness for snail mailing has provided me with some beautiful samples, as well. One of my favorite handwritten pieces is a really lovely document from Etsy which was written in the early 1900's that has the most exquisite penmanship.

Here are some examples of lovely penmanship (including some handlettering) I found on flickr today that caught my eye:
