21st Century Luxury: Handwriting

by Alexandra Lloyd


Handwriting, particularly copperplate, is already dying out as we send more and more communications verbally with our telephones or as digital messages. Less and less people know cursive, and the handwritten invitation or card is already being seen as something of a lucury due to the extra time that it takes to produce (with time being the ultimate luxury). It is likely that by the end of the century, handwriting will be a skill that very few people have, and with rarity comes exclusivity and an association with luxury. Above is a handwritten Chanel Joaillerie invitation.
