Letters of Note: A Dying Art

The modern day has sadly resulted in letter writing becoming a dying art. Whilst the postman may still have a full sack of printed bills and formal communication, it becomes rare that when we hear the thump of the post through the letterbox in the morning, we are greeted with hand-written thoughts and personalised messages. Whether these are the romantic thoughts of long-distance lovers, words of condolence or simply the scribbles of a friend, there is something personal about that unique scrawl; its tangibility makes it all the more heartwarming than Times New Roman font, printed on pristine white factory paper.
