Letters of Note: a collection of famous correspondence

We’re all voyeurs at heart, right? Well, I am anyways and so, it would seem, is Shaun Usher, the man behind the blog and soon-to-be-book, Letters of Note. Usher has amassed an astonishing archive of personal letters written by some of the most adventurous minds and engrossing personalities of our times. Going through Letters of Note is a bit like rummaging through your neighbors’ mailboxes – if your neighbors were people like Lee Scratch Perry, Kurt Vonnegut and Helen Keller.
