The Simple Joy of Handwriting on Paper

How many readers remember the old school joy of turning a full page of handwritten notes and running your hands along the bumpy underside of the page?

One Reddit user snapped a photograph (embedded above) of a recently finished page of notes, writing “does anyone else feel oddly satisfied by turning the page after writing for a while to see this?” So far, that photograph has been viewed nearly 38,000 times online.

If that picture made you happy, check out our What Is Your Favorite Kind of Pen? post and our Ballpoint Pen Fan Fiction collection.
