A Letter in the Mail

March 15, 2010

 

A recent release called Yours Ever – People and Their Letters by Thomas Mellon has captured significant attention in book shops. It seems the techno communicators of today are feeling nostalgic for the art of handwritten correspondence. This collection “reminds us all of the power and importance of the humble letter.” (Bookmarks)  There have been a few “Epistolary” styled books in recent years that have achieved great success – all of them are charming but the last title in the list is my all-time favourite!
