The Lost Art of Letter Writing




Elco
Elegant Letterhead Paper
1928



This smart art deco poster makes me lament the loss of letter writing in this digital age. 
Does anyone even bother anymore? .. I hope so.
I still harbour fond memories of pretty stationery sets, a fine pen, 
and marvelling over someone's beautiful handwriting. 
Does that make me too old fashioned... or just too old?

I'm also one of those (probably annoying) people who get upset by misspelt words, especially when they appear somewhere they shouldn't - such as on tv or in newspapers.
.. "Don't these people have spell-checkers at least?"

Anyway, I don't think I'm ever going to warm to the truncated sms banter of today...
I'm sticking with my old books.. (and posters!).
