We haven’t been shy about exposing our adoration for love letters, especially those of the handwritten variety. Nothing is more special than putting pen to paper for your sweetheart with musings and drawings that unveil affections. Seriously, where’s the romance, or fun for that matter, in an “I <3 you” text? There is none!! And if your love-letter skills are a bit rusty, take a cue from these letter-scribing virtuosos, who also happen to be some of our favorite musicians, authors, and artists. Join us as we geek out over the darling, sometimes silly, sometimes heartbreaking love notes from the likes of Sid Vicious, Marylin Monroe, and Virginia Woolf after the jump.
Spain-stationed illustrator Jeez Vanilla has created a line of teacups featuring retro portraits of figures from 1904, 1925, 1938, and 1953. We are especially fond of the 1953 gentlemen with his thick-rimmed glasses, but if you enjoy the styles of flappers, gangsters and 20th century ladies, then come travel through the decades this way.
