How’s the reading going?? Margaret Shepherd’s book, The Art of the Handwritten Note, may be tiny, but we hope you’ve realized that it’s FULL of helpful tips and advice on the etiquette of handwritten notes. Has it inspired you to start writing more? Have you found some pretty pens and stationery? Personal cards and notes are always a joy to receive in the mail, but as Ovid said, “While writing, the very pleasure gives toil.” We hope this book helps YOU enjoy the writing, giving, and sending aspect of handwritten mail.
And to go along with this month’s book we have guest illustrator, Leah Goren, who created a special illustrated bookmark with a quote from the book that reads “Letters mingle souls” from John Donne. Leah is one of my favorite illustrators and I was so pleased to have her join us this month. You can download the bookmark below! Read on →
