Bomo letter writing pack

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

As I'm sure all of you know by now, I write proper letters, on nice paper, to a number of people, and I have done for decades. Sometimes they are quick notes; sometimes they are longer missives. They are often just to exchange news. Occasionally, they are to force a stressed friend to sit down and concentrate on something else for ten minutes, rather than whatever is stressing them.

The front covers are classy retro, and the addition of textured end-papers adds a touch of luxury too. These books are nicely thick too, with plenty of pages of excellent cream paper; there's enough texture for graphite fans to be happy, but it behaves very well with fountain pens too.
