Wordy Type:Handwritten Letter Project

Have you heard of the Handwritten Letter Project?

It’s not uncommon among word-loving types to bemoan the death of language and the impersonal nature of modern correspondence. Well, a guy named Craig Oldham actually decided to turn this sentiment into a project by inviting a number of creative minds to send him a handwritten letter with their thoughts on the subject.

The collected results can be seen on his website and through this book. If you’re in England, you can catch the traveling exhibit.

Totally cool.

Cheers, Amy
