Call me a creep, but I love reading other people’s correspondence. This could be all shades of awkward (not to mention illegal) if books like this didn’t exist to distract me from the private letters of those rather nearer at hand. Full of eloquent, articulate and delightfully bizarre insights into the minds and thoughts of people from Jane Austen to Albus Dumbledore – reproduced in full colour and brilliant detail – this is a volume to browse and treasure for years to come.
