The Kid Should See This

Print and cursive capital letters, neatly handwritten

Japanese calligrapher Takumi handwrites print and cursive capital letters neatly with a pencil. In just three weeks, since it was published in mid-April 2021, this simple, calming video has amassed 11 million views.

Watch as Takumi, a Tokyo Gakugei University graduate who majored in calligraphy, neatly draws each letter with both straight and curved lines. Or hit pause after each letter and practice your own versions.
