You're overlooking the fascination young people have with old and quaint stuff. Are you old enough to remember the calligraphy craze?

I still find old calligraphy pens, paper, and accoutrements in various storage boxes and art supplies. I tried to master various forms of calligraphy and I did well. These days, I cannot read my own handwriting at times.

There will be tons of self-help books.

How to write cursive?

...many more web sites...

No wonder there is talk of taking this out of schools. Like so many other things, handwriting can be learned on the web. How well it can be learned is a whole 'nuther matter.

There will be college electives.
