    The Very Weird Handwriting Of Very Famous Authors

    Pen and paper like you've never seen it before.

    George Orwell

    Via bitrebels.com

    ALL CAPS FOR EMPHASIS. We bet texting with George Orwell would be very overwhelming.

    Jorge Luis Borges

    Via nsmbl.com

    Man or machine?

    F. Scott Fitzgerald

    Via theatlantic.com

    A handwritten page of the classic The Great Gatsby written in Great Girly writing

    J.K. Rowling

    Via flavorwire.com

    Her plan for Harry Potter looks kind of like it belongs in an eighth-grade notebook and it's awesome.

    Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

    Via theatlantic.com

    How is this...possible? Someone make a Steinbeck font, pronto.

    Ernest Hemingway

    Via huffingtonpost.com

    He always said he preferred to write drunk--perhaps that explains all the loops.

    Vladimir Nabokov

    Via theatlantic.com

    Not sure this shows how he wrote, but it certainly shows how he crossed things out.

    Jane Austen

    Via theguardian.com

    Tis a truth universally acknowledged that only Jane Austen can read her handwriting.

    Franz Kafka

    Via nytimes.com

    Um...what?

    David Foster Wallace

    Via hrc.utexas.edu

    Extra points for sticker usage.

    Lewis Carroll

    Via theatlantic.com

    Lewis' doodles make your doodles look like child's play.

    Emily Dickinson

    Via therumpus.net

    Pretty much looks like a language from another planet. Kind of like her poems!

    Mark Twain

    Via theatlantic.com

    From the pictures we've seen, we'd say the handwriting matches the man.

    Walt Whitman

    Via exhibits.lib.byu.edu

    Last but not least, Walt Whitman. CLASSIC. Oh, Walt. Such penmanship. Aren't those the most beautiful "W"s you've ever seen?
