Coffee Table Book - Letters of Note
I know I'm not doing a traditional 'Christmas Gift Guide' on my blog this year but I really wanted to post about this book as I honestly think it makes the most perfect gift for someone and you've still got a good few days left to order it for it to come on time for Christmas day.
I got this last Christmas from my mama and it was one of my favourite presents. It is one of the most beautiful looking books and it really is the most perfect coffee table book as no one can walk by it without having a peek inside and it looks stunning on display too.
This is the book version of the super popular blog 'letters of Note'. The book and blog are both created by Shaun Usher who has found some of the most wonderful, beautiful, sad, happy and down right inspirational letters that you will have ever read.
All the letters are sent from people of note, some you will recognise and some you might not have heard of but it doesn't even really matter because by the end of the letter, its like you feel you know them just that little bit more. There is something just so beyond personal about reading peoples correspondence to each other. It's like you get a glimpse into their world for just a moment.
I have poured over this book for hours and I always find something new every time I look at it. Some of the letters have really, really made a massive impact on me and I think you can't ask for anything more in a book than that. There are also some really sweet letters that will make you laugh and smile like one of my favourites above from Roald Dahl.
I can't recommend this book enough, even if you've done all your Christmas shopping, treat yourself as it really is such a worthwhile read. It is absolutely massive too so if you do buy it as a gift, it does look like you've spent a mass amount of money buying someone a super luxe book, it looks super impressive.
