Lost Art of Letters

A few weeks back a friend sent Port and me typed thank you notes.  Talk about above and beyond.  Email sure is great, but so are airmail envelopes, foreign stamps, Palmer penmanship and typewriter fonts.  All this well-traveled correspondence available on Ebay

    I'm a ebay nerd as well, and I still have packaging from foreign countries in my closet because i can't bear to part with something so unique and timeless. I wish more letters were still written. Penmanship is almost a lost artform.

  2. i loved this post. i love the way typed thank you notes sounds. this is the only post i've read this year that references the palmer method!!! that's damn cool.

    and the wonderful airmail envelopes! all little works of art : )
