The art of writing letters


A few posts ago I mentioned how much I like receiving letters from our friend Manabu, who has the ability to write in straight lines without even trying. I went digging through my letters box to try and find some of his recent correspondence, and came up with these two. Aside from the sloppy photoshopping of my address (you hardly expected me to leave it visible, did you?), these are lovely examples of Manabu’s missives from Japan. Nothing beats getting a letter in the mail – and given my truckloads of lettersets, it seems I have no excuse but to get writing.

A special thanks to Manabu for letting me display his letters!
