Hand Written Letter Project

Hand written letter project crouwel

Here’s a great little project by the talented Craig Oldham. Hand Written Letter Project was started in 2007, and is a collection of hand written letters by some well-regarded designers on their own stationery. Some of the invited designers include Michael Bierut, Steven Heller, Tony Brook, Milton Glaser, and my favorite of the collection, Wim Crouwel.

The collection will be released in a limited edition book that will accompany a traveling exhibition, both of which will be raising funds for the National Literacy Trust.

Great idea and cause.

    Sub; CELEBRATE NATIONAL HANDWRITING DAY (23rd:January)
    S i r ,
    It is a pleasure for me to mention that 23rd:January
    is a very remarkable day for all of us, specially in the field of
    communications. PEN MANSHIP and Good HANDWRITING really adds a more
    personal and more persuasive touch as well as intimacy to a letter.
    Though computer & E.mail play an important role, but nothing will ever
    replace the effection and sincerity of HANDWRITTEN words.
    To mark this important day and to re-explore the
    real power & purity of HANDWRITING please contribute your mini share
    in the “National Handwriting Day’s Celebrations” by allowing a very
    small share,from your official Typed Mailings to Personal Handwritten
    Mailings. Really this will be a great job towards the restoration of
    present declining condition of real handwritten letters, notes, cards
    and envelopes etc.

    business. To add myself in this Celebrations,it will be a pleasure

  • Few feelings beat the excitement of receiving a hand-written letter in the mail. In a time where we’re so used to the printed word, letters that have been written by hand show almost-forgotten thought and effort. They capture our interest and our imagination, and they make us feel special.

    You can send a hand-written letter without leaving your own home or office. Our letters are suitable for personal or business use, and we’re able to write letters in bulk for successful mass mailings with that individual touch. With us, your letters are worth attention.
