Letters Of Note Book



Congrats to one of my favorite blogs, Letters of Note, on the up-coming US publication of their book - Letters of Note. What a great blog! Each post is a letter or note from the past. The writers can be anyone - from a Elizabeth Taylor to quintuplets to a Samuel Clemens to name a few recent posts. The letters are about love, success, failure, hellos, goodbyes - in a word, life.

This is from the book site:

Letters of Note is a collection of 125 of the world's most entertaining, inspiring and unusual letters. 
From Virginia Woolf's heart-breaking suicide letter, to Queen Elizabeth II's recipe for drop scones sent to President Eisenhower; from the first recorded use of the expression 'OMG' in a letter to Winston Churchill, to Gandhi's appeal for calm to Hitler; and from Iggy Pop's beautiful letter of advice to a troubled young fan, to Leonardo da Vinci's remarkable job application letter,Letters of Note is a celebration of the power of written correspondence which captures the humour, seriousness, sadness and brilliance that make up all of our lives.

The UK edition is out now. The US edition, published by Chronicle Books, is available May 6th. More info on Letters Of Note.
