Beautifully illustrated and complete with cut-out postcard designs and papercraft and rubber stamp templates, Snail Mail explores the art of handwritten correspondence - learn how to romance someone the old-school way through love-letters; understand the etiquette of thank you cards, and be inspired to take time to reflect on your life through writing.
Michelle Mackintosh shows you how to improve your handwriting, make your own paper, personalise stickers and stamps, or make beautiful DIY invitations. In a world of internet trolls, 140-character limits, Snapchats and textspeak, are we losing the ability to really communicate with our loved ones? Snail Mail brings back handwritten communication - and more - in one perfectly proper package.
It's time to take back the written word!

Next week sees the beginning of May. Not just any old May, but Meat Free May! This year we will be supporting Friends of the Earth in their annual campaign to encourage the nation to cut down on the amount of meat that we munch. We will be waving goodbye to our inner carnivores for a month, exchanging our chicken for chickpeas and taking a break from steak!
