Now that spring is in the air, there’s something in me that wants to sit by an open window, breeze in my hair, and write a letter. Yes, I said write a letter. Perhaps I’m off my rocker – in the age of instant communication, why would I take the time to put pen to page and practice my cursive? The answer is simple. Stationary.
Everywhere I go I see beautiful notebooks, colourful envelopes and reams of vintage-style paper. Snail mail seems to be quite a trend these days. And perhaps most tempting of all is the Moleskine Kraft Postal Notebook ($8). This all-in-one correspondence solution promises to turn an ordinary letter into a full-on art project. It has 8 blank pages on which to let your imagination go wild: draw, write, collage, paint. And when you’re done, just fold it all up and mail it.
If you’re going to take the time to send hand-written correspondence, why not make it extra special.
