Happy Mail by Eunice and Sabrina Moyle

A Rapid Review

Keep in touch with cool & stylish handmade snail mail!

Publisher: Walter Foster Jr | September 2017
Format: Paperback | Rating: 4 stars
Genre: Children, Ages 8+

It’s more than just writing, it’s an art! Hand-lettering is easy to dive into, even for new artists, and Happy Mail is here to take your DIY projects to the next level!

What’s it about . . .
The introductory section of the book covers letter writing basics: How to write a letter, reasons you would want to write one, how to address an envelope — all things most of us take for granted but not something our newest instant communication generation is going to learn unless someone shows them.

The book then moves on to a series of hand-lettering projects and how to illustrate and construct your own cards and letters. The final section consists of 40 already designed cards and stationary that are ready to use.

What did I think . . .
This is a fun way to introduce youngsters to what used to be routine correspondence. And who doesn’t like to receive an original card, letter, or invitation in the mail? Although the book is aimed at ages 8 to 12, I bet adults and teens would enjoy it too.

    There’s nothing like getting a letter in the mail.
