Came across this article on BBC News...

Does this make handwriting analysis, or using handwriting analysis as a plot point in an effect, relevant and an interesting angle? You talk about how experts fear handwriting is dead, everyone is texting and typing -- but as writing skills deteriorate, a person's true essence becomes even more apparent in their handwriting.

Just a thought...

I fully agree with this article and your thoughts. When I was in primary school in the 70s, one of my teachers taught us also calligraphy.

I think in France and in Szwitzerland it was common that companies required your CV in handwriting and passed it on to a specialist in handwriting to find out more about future employees.
