Please Write by Lynne Kolze book cover

Please Write is a love letter to the art of letter writing, a meditation on all that’s warm and nostalgic about exchanging letters. For previous generations, a lot of life was lived through letters, and Please Write reminds the reader of this: love letters, letters of gratitude, postcards sent while travelling, and letters which share all the gossip and, sometimes, the bad news.

Letters are a tangible thing we can share, something that can remain when we’re gone, and Kolze reminds us of and celebrates that magical quality. This isn’t a straightforward history of letter-writing (though you will find some of that in its pages), but a reminder of what letters can be.”
