In this fifth mini-video, Mrs. Collins explains, in a heart felt manner, what its like receiving a personal letter.
This series of ten videos, all less than a minute in length, are snippets about engraved stationery, receiving personal letters in the snail-mail method (through the post office), and what its like being a stationer creating personal correspondence papers for loyal clients. This covers typography, graphic design, etiquette, composition, papers used for stationery, stationery, monograms, ciphers, and all sorts of ephemera used to write letters.
