Did you know that there are 12 master penmen in the world? The youngest one, Jake Weidmann comes to the light in a fascinating UPROXX video. Jake strives to save the artform of penmanship, not only as an artform but also as a functionality. Imagine if the historical documents we look up to today, like the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence, were typed into an email or a word document. Where would the originality be? Where would the individuality be in each of it’s signing members? Master Penman Jake Weidmann talks about the dying artform in this short video and discusses his passion and how he plans to continue to live it through.
