'A Handbook for Letter Writing' is a comprehensive and exhaustive book which has been designed to help in learning the art and techniques of writing letters. Books shelved as letter-writing: The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt, Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School by Mark Teague, The Jolly Postm.

As a child I remember having many pen-pals - some I am still in contact with now, although admittedly we mostly email. Email certainly has its uses and is an immediate way to contact someone, but perhaps they do not have the depth of a letter and the author explores this unique form of communication. He argues that letters in the modern sense are both personal and informative and begin properly with the Romans, "the f In this book the author looks at a now vanishing art - that of letter writing. He argues that letters in the modern sense are both personal and informative and begin properly with the Romans, "the first true letter writers. We hear from Cicero, "personal and scheming" and of what Julius Caesar was like as a dinner guest and Seneca, "instructional and disarming", who possibly wrote the first self help manuals. This entire book is full of wonderful nuggets and just about every famous literary and historical era is covered. The author looks in depth at love letters, greeting cards, the postal service and how to write the perfect letter. There are endless facts to be learnt - for example that 'x's' on a letter first developed from drawing a cross in medieval times and kissing it as a sign of faith, which developed into shorthand for kisses or where the first fictional letter appears the Illiad. He examines epistolary novels of the eighteenth century, those who wrote letters with an eye on posterity and being published and those, like Jane Austen, whose letters were domestic in viewpoint domestic, but certainly not dull - Austen could never be dull in my opinion.

Friendship gradually blossoms to love in a very sweet way and we read the unfolding story of a courtship entirely by post. Naturally, the author ends his work in the only way possible - with a thank you letter to everyone who helped him. I would like to add my thanks - this is a wonderful book to either dip into or read in a single setting.
