The handwriting guide series Hatera Lekha, হাতের লেখা, teaches children to write in the cursive, flowing Bengali script with dotted guidelines. This is the inside front cover of the booklet – it looks as if perhaps teachers, authors, or handwriting experts have all signed their names? They all begin with “shree”, an honorific title. The text below I believe reads “scholars” of Hatera Lekha”.. and something about handwriting being one-of-a-kind..
After learning Devanagari primarily from typefaces, I was surprised to see how different handwritten Bengali looks from the typeface form. I absolutely love handwritten Bengali.
