Love Letters Touched by History…

I still write paper-and-ink letters, using a quill pin and a vintage blotter…so this “Throwback Thursday” blog is dedicated to letters of love…. (Check out the charming Griffin & Sabine series by Nick Bantock, as well…)

So I chose to put together a sampling of love letters from artists and other notables throughout history. (If you have other sites/links to recommend, feel free to post in the comments. Or write a love letter to your own secret heart…):
