Publisher Review

The literary equivalent of a box of chocolates - bite-sized and pure addictive pleasure . . . The result is beautifully produced, with photographs and colour facsimiles of much of the correspondence. A gorgeous Christmas present * * The Sunday Times * * A gloriously presented compilation * * Financial Times * * Addictive, like dipping into a bag of variously tempting assorted candies, knowing that the next one will always bring surprise and pleasure * * New Yorker * * Quite literally the most enjoyable volume it is possible to imagine. Every page is a marvel * * Spectator * * The volume is so well-produced it could become an heirloom, passed down through generations * * Huffington Post * * Praise for Letters of Note: It is hard to see how Letters Of Note could ever be surpassed * * Mail on Sunday * * A wonderful collection of magical missives . . . It'll have you reaching for pen and paper * * Evening Standard * *
