Description
"The nib touches the paper. And instinctively I follow the old formula: address in top right-hand corner; date just beneath it on the left-hand side. My writing looks weird. I hand-write so infrequently these days that I've developed a graphic stammerómy brain's way of registering its impatience and bemusement. What are you doing? Send a sodding email. I haven't got all night." Inspired to put a real pen to real paper when responding to thank a friend for heartfelt condolences, former Time Out magazine senior editor John O'Connell begins this love letter to actual letters with a search for the perfect plain writing paper, and considers the importance of handwriting, the deliberateness of thought required, and what great letter-writers of the past have to teach us.
