March 2018: The Beauty of the Letter

March is the month where we tentatively begin to shed our woollen coats and scarves; we turn down the heating on the dial. Spring adds an atmosphere of lightness to the air and we need a refresh. Perhaps we start to clear out our cupboards and discover a letter from an old friend who’s faded from our immediate horizon. Maybe we start to write them a new letter.

This month, expect the books showing what the letter – as correspondence, as art form, as political weapon – can really do. If you’re a fiction subscriber, you’ll receive one or two books deploying the letter in creative ways used since Samuel Richardson’s 1740 epistolary novel Pamela. If you picked nonfiction, look forward to the power of letter-writing in history or memoir, and even as typography. And if you chose a mixed subscription, well, you’ll get the best of both worlds.

“I have to admit that I hadn’t heard of either of [the books included] but that is one of the joys of a subscription box. You never know what you will receive and you can be introduced to books you might not have come across otherwise.”
