This book is also the opposite of one of those cookbooks where you have to chop eighteen different vegetables and then you get to the end of the recipe and have to make a separate sauce from page 245. Everything is simple and clear. The vibe is warm and genuinely creative. The projects are doable and super fun. The spirit is to use letter writing as a practice of connecting with other people and as part of living a meaningful and original life. It's about elevating and expanding the everyday for yourself and people around you. The primary audience is teenage girls, and I love how the book connects with humor, wit, and kindness. It's deeply respectful of the reader at the same time it's cool. Would be a great gift for any maker in your life, young or old. Highly recommend!
I would LOVE to see a real VOL. 2 of this book (I know there is the activist one but would like something more focused on just being creative and making things for friends). My 7 year old is able to follow the ideas.
The lettering and illustrations are quite primitive, most of them would appeal to preteens, tops.
The language as written, however, seems to target young adults.
At any rate, with some adaptation, a fairly wide age range could come away with at least something useful from the book.
There are handwriting samples to learn, some of them juvenile, some not.
Also included are drawing and painting ideas that require little skill, and it shows.
Along with that are demos of how to make your own envelopes, and how to style them, along with various ways to style the letter creatively.
The last1/3 of the book is a variety of stationery you can make creative use of yourself: postcards, traditional letters, even tri-fold letters you can fold, seal and send.
Also worth mentioning is the fact that almost all of the book is in a particular style, much like the one you see on the cover.
If that is all you want from it, you have found the right book.
There are ways to make these ideas work, but I had more in mind a wider variety of ideas and techniques, as the product information seemed to imply.
