In a world of 140-character limits, Snapchats, textspeak and internet trolls, are we losing the ability to really communicate with our loved ones? Snail Mail aims to bring back handwritten communication – and more – in one beautifully illustrated and perfectly proper little package.
Inspired by Japanese stationery and letter-writing culture, Michelle Mackintosh introduces the reader to the charm of the handwritten letter, personalized 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 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 romance someone the old-school way; how to make pen friends and DIY beautiful invitations for any occasion.
It’s time to bring back the written word!
