Snail Mail : Celebrating the Art of Handwritten Correspondence, Hardback

Snail Mail : Celebrating the Art of Handwritten Correspondence Hardback



Inspired by Japanese stationery and letter-writing culture, Michelle Mackintosh introduces the reader to the charm of the handwritten letter, personalised packages and handcrafted stationery.

Beautifully illustrated and complete with cut-out postcard designs, papercraft and rubber stamp templates, Snail Mail is full of equally useful and whimsical advice, like how to say thank you in a letter, romance someone, and other old-school etiquette; how to take time and reflect on your life through writing; how to improve and celebrate your own handwriting; how to make your own paper; how to choose papers, make stickers and stamps (and the best places to shop for materials); how to prepare a care package for friends and loved ones; how to make beautiful DIY invitations; and how to make pen friends.

The ideal gift for a friend or cute self-purchase, Snail Mail will appeal to anyone who is tired of social media and the age of the text message.
