Synopsis

In the age of e-mails and cell phones, these exuberant thank yous, heart-warming love notes, travel letters, and graphic instructions from the early nineteenth century through the 1980s resonate as part of a fading but worthy tradition of personalized communication. Drawn from the collection of the Archives of American Art, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, the illustrated letters in this book present beautifully crafted images by some of the country's most accomplished artists, included to amplify the effect of their sentiments. Among the artists, Normal Rockwell, Winslow Homer, Alexander Calder, Eero Saarinen, Andy Warhol, and many many more.
