The Written Word

Created for Digitalmania. This week's theme: In The Style of Nick Bantack

While Nick Bantack contains his mail artwork to the surface of a single envelope I find myself needing more space. It's not that I have a bigger story to tell but it is just the story I want to tell. While not copying his work, he did inspire this piece.

...letters traveling around the world, maps and foreign postage telling part of the story...letters lost...letters found...letters saved in a box...letters tied with a ribbon...letters untied bringing back memories...just to see your handwritting again makes my heart skip a beat because that is all I have left of you...

Letter writing has become a lost art. I have saved letters. Emails? Not so much.
