The Letters of Note book

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 28, 2014

Letters of Note, which I’ve featured on kottke.org many times, is coming out with a book, which collects some of the site’s best and most memorable letters.

This spectacular collection of more than 125 letters offers a never-before-seen glimpse of the events and people of history — the brightest and best, the most notorious, and the endearingly everyday. Entries include a transcript of the letter; a short contextual introduction; and, in 100 cases, a captivating facsimile of the letter itself.

A UK version has been available since last year and the US version will be out on May 6.
