The future scriptorium?

A robot calligrapher!

I tried to find where this picture originated, but I didn't have any luck. Part of the trail went through here and here.

So I never did find the original source, but this is just stunning. What does it mean for those of us who played with calligraphy? Most of us were put out of business as a result of desktop publishing and laser printers. But there was still a place for beautiful Bibles lettered by hand, I thought.

I guess not. But it's still cool.
