Description
From the early Greek philosophers to the novels of Jane Austen, letter-writing has played a defining role in shaping our culture and our civilization. And while e-mails and text messages may be forcing the decline of hand-written correspondence, admits Liz Williams, this age-old method of communication has become all the more valuable to its senders and recipients. Hoping to reverse that trend, she takes readers on a postal journey of discovery—via the invention of the fountain pen, the development of the mail system, and the wonderful words of history's great correspondents—exploring the impact of the humble missive in changing the world.
