” The power of the written word

In a day and age where people are glued to their phones and computers, the art of the written word has slowly faded further and further away. I wanted to create something that showcased how beautiful this art still is. The art of letter writing is just as important today than it was hundreds of years ago as it reveals something about your personality that a machine can’t. Your style of handwriting, choice of ink and paper all say something about you as an individual. Handwritten love letters are more personal and meaningful, too. Just the thought of someone taking time out of their busy day to sit down and write onto paper the poetry of their heart is truly magical. ” – From Mana Abosaid of Birds & Honey:
