    I will start with some background. I graduated from collage about a year ago and have really slowed in using my pens. I have recently really missed having a reason to put pen to paper and have started to look into getting into letter writing. Other then being of a generation where the pen has been mostly pushed aside for the latest iPhone leading to me not having the best handwriting I have one very dumb question. How important is it to use proper stationary? I only ask as I dont want to seem rude writing on plane printer paper or some other easily accessible paper as long as its not notebook
  2. Tell me more about writing letters. I know the basic idea, where we put the date at the top, words in the middle, and our signature at the end. But for an art steeped in ritual and tradition, I suddenly realized I know next to nothing about the art of writing letters. As I've been practising my penmanship, I got thinking that maybe it would be more fun if I had an external motivation to work on my letters. Maybe finding some penpals would help build my confidence (and help me use up some of my stationary so I have an excuse to buy some more). I found some potential penpals, but when I

    108 Letters

    There's a piece on letter writing in the December 11, 2017 issue on the Washington Post by Tim Johnson: Weary of the Internet, I went back to mail. 108 letters later, here’s what I learned. "I wrote one letter every day, to someone I knew or used to know or wanted to know better."
  5. I found the attached postcard with a reproduction of a British WWII poster encouraging letter writing instead of using the telephone. The text reads "Think ahead, write instead." The design is by noted graphic artist Hans Schleger, who went by "ZERO." Presumably, the government meant to reduce the use of telephone lines--a scarce commodity in war time? I wonder if a similar campaign was mounted elsewhere. Also, I wonder if much has been written about government attempts to encourage letter writing. Now would be a good time for one, if only to prop up the sale of first class stamps!

    Crane Stationery

    The Boston Globe recently interviewed Crane & Co. creative director John Segal. http://postscript.crane.com/paper-habits-boston-globe/http://postscript.crane.com/paper-habits-boston-globe/ Reminds me of visiting my Uncle John's print shop as a kid. Happy reading and writing.
  7. Continuing on a theme of letter writing to some extent.... It wasn't all that long ago in the USA that interstate long-distance calling was a battleground for companies, "local long distance" phone charges were real (and really expensive), and that letter writing was more common well before then. Yesterday I did something that I realized I haven't done in a long time: I wrote a handwritten letter to respond to a handwritten letter. I commented on this to a few people and I've had some good conversation around it and the nostalgia of writing letters. Yet I digress. We have the FPN Post Of
  8. I'm considering writing letters again. On most days I have a few moments at work when I need to stare at a blank piece of paper, because my eyeballs have been glued to a computer screen for hours. For those of you who write letters, want to write letters, or have the materials to write letters and can't get to it - what do you carry around with you on a daily basis? Obviously I need paper, pen, perhaps envelopes and stamps, but I'm looking for more specifics with what you personally carry with you to write a letter if the mood strikes. Knowing how many letters you write (or try to write) in
