Description
Beautifully illustrated with reproductions of masterworks, magazine advertisements, and drawings, Edward St. Paige's celebration of the lost art of handwritten letters explores the emotional and spiritual benefits of this increasingly esoteric practice. Fountain pens and ink, stationery, and even the language of stamps (an upside–down stamp in the top right-hand corner says "I am always thinking of you") are discussed in this delightful volume, which also includes quotes from such fervent and gleeful letter-writers—and recipients—as J.B. Priestley, Herman Melville, and Vita Sackville-West.
