Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Interior designer Stoddard Styles for Living here recommends writing letters as a rewarding way of keeping in touch with relatives and friends instead of relying on the ubiquitous telephone. She describes her own satisfactions as a devotee of the neglected practice, but not everyone will embrace her tips on personalizing one's letters, which include writing with colored inkswith a $500 fountain pen, perhaps?/perhaps;she does suggest bying a proper fountain pen, meaning expensive.gs , using engraved stationery and monogrammed notes, inserting ``special treasures'' such as a pressed flower. On the other hand, Stoddard bolsters her arguments in favor of letter-writing with quotes from Edith Wharton, Colette and Samuel Johnson, among others who made an art of correspondence.
