The Forgotten Art Of Letter Writing
|Lovely new book|
I came across this cute book, published this week, Snail Mail My Email by Ivan Cash. He is a writer and artist and former ad-man and bemoans the nostalgic art of letter writing. He offered anyone a chance to have a handwritten letter delivered for free to a person of their choice - all they had to do was email the content to him. He then hand wrote and illustrated a beautiful personal missive on their behalf.
This idea was obviously something that attracted the public attention to the extent that he received over thirteen thousand emails to turn into works of art and had to employ an army of helpers. He achieved his objective and the best, the funniest, the prettiest and the most inspiring are included in this lovely book.
I loved the idea and would love to have received a handwritten and artistic personal letter from him.

This idea reminded me a little of the lovely book The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Arlberg, which I so enjoyed with my children.
