Amazing hand-written Assyrian from over a century ago
« on: September 20, 2015, 11:33:38 PM »
My father in law showed me this notebook from over one hundred years ago. I believe it was written by some Assyrian priest. It is about the Arabian tribe of 'Bani Hillal' from which Muhammad came.

Anyway, look at how professional his hand writing is. It is like it was typed. Never seen hand-written Assyrian this good!

my english handwriting is bad, so my Assyrian handwriting is even worse considering I never started writing until I was 15

It really does look like it's printed or at least made by a typewriter.

Cursive isn't pretty? English Cursive itself is as beautiful as Syriac

You have a point.Many in my generation do not write in cursive and print like they are elementary schoolers.Despite the fact cursive is easier,quicker and better looking.

I think Syriac edges out slightly.

Not going to lie, I learned cursive too but the only time I ever use cursive is when I write my signature.

So, just like your generation, I print like an elementary schooler with the addition of writing in 3 Syriac styles :D

Sorry to say but Cursive is dead in the current American generation.
