מזוזה קטנה

This mezuzah was on qelaf smaller than I normally use. Not every lamedh is as long as I would like and the edges could be neater. On the other hand, the quality of the writing is better in terms of form and legibility than I see on most mezuzoth of comparable size. This is because many are written by beginners who are cranking out as many as they possibly can, and because since mezuzah writing is not usually visible, those writing sometimes try to get away with aesthetic murder. The result is often halakhically unfortunate.

Here is mine, for scale against Torah writing and my hand.
