Manuscript of a poem Sine sole nihil sum

Many modern writers endeavored to cultivate a distinctive calligraphic handwriting. Primarily, this practice aimed to signify their high culture and affirm the authenticity of their stylization. At the turn of the century, Jiří Karásek ze Lvovic departed from his simple, childlike handwriting and embraced sophisticated gothic strokes, varying them in the subsequent decades. He played with the shape and slant of the letters, altered the majuscule and the signature, and experimented with different colors of ink and pen. As a result, his written expression maintained a lifelong sense of nobility, inspiring some young artists who later compared their own to handwriting to his.
