Letters of Note
An Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience
Ranging from diplomatic correspondence of the 14th century BCE to letters by Bette Davis and Iggy Pop, these 125 historic missives are by turns witty, poignant and enlightening. To quote Shaun Usher’s letter to the reader, ‘I can think of no better way to learn about the past than through the often candid correspondence of those who lived it’. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
More Letters of Note
Letters of Note was an unexpected publishing sensation - a crowd-funded anthology of letters that became an international bestseller. This follow-up delivers the same mix of the tragic, the comic, the heartfelt and the historically significant. Illustrated with colour facsimiles of the original letters, it includes Richard Burton's farewell note to Elizabeth Taylor on their divorce, David Bowie's touching reply to his first American fan letter, and the final missive from a doomed Japan Airlines flight.
