When This Is Our City contributor Chris Horst told us about Jake Weidmann we were immediately intrigued. Jake is one of a handful of Master Penman in the United States. While most of us chase what's new, Jake is intentionally holding onto what is old. His stewardship of the craft of handwriting have led him to create some amazing art.
