On handwritten vs typed text


I was thinking about perfect-looking text, like the stuff you're reading now that's been typed by a computer instead of written by my hand:

'Back in the day', before we could just reproduce letters and write shit out so that it looks perfect and all the letters were identical, this sort of effect had to be attempted by hand. when achieved, it exuded an aesthetic of extreme labour and care; it proved that TONNES of work went into rendering each letter, and thus there was a sort of air of dignity and a special beauty to it.
now, however, such fancy perfect-looking lettering is EVERYWHERE, since it's easier than life to reproduce letters. therefore, it's lost this air of specialness and dignity, and it's become way more common in our visual landscape than hand-written text.
thus, it feels, at least to me, as if now hand-written text, despite how sloppy or quick it looks, is the sort of text that gives an air of effort and care, not to mention intimacy, and computerised text is the lazy choice. so yeah, i was just thinking about this weird shift.
