Letter writing

Monday, 14 November 2011

Although I'm a fan of email, twitter etc somehow there is nothing that quite beats handwritten correspondance, whether it is on a letter or in a beautiful card. The handwriting, the choice of stamps, the beautiful paper. Each step conveys personality and thoughtfulness.

I think these illustrated letters by Vincent Van Gogh are beautiful. It's also interesting to see the stationery that people pick.

This is so Marilyn - the nude/flesh colour, the softly embossed name and the tactile texture of the paper. Everything about it is sensual.

Strong, understated, stylish. Pure Paul Newman.
