The Lost Art of Letter-writing

Book - 2012
Rate this:
Including ruminations on the importance of letter writing from famous literary and historical luminaries past, this is the fascinating story of how a simple piece of paper revolutionized global communication. Ever since the advent and increasing popularity of electronic communication, it has become clear that the worthy art of letter writing is in sad decline. Here, the complete history of letter writing and how it has shaped the world today is explored-from the early Greek philosophers to the great letter writers. It also covers the invention of the fountain pen and the growth of the mail delivery system, instructions for novice letter writers on how to construct the perfect correspondence, and how-despite the ever-growing influence of technology-handwritten letters might at last be regaining their value, meaning, and popularity in the modern world.
