The man on the photo is Shaun Usher. Shaun started a website a few years back. It has been visited by over 100 million people. He calls his project Letters of Note, and describes it as an “attempt to gather and sort fascinating letters, postcards, telegrams, faxes, and memos”.
Shaun visited our Nordic Christmas party last Friday, and it is safe to say that the 210 people in the audience were so quiet that you could hear a pin drop, when he conveyed his passion for letters and read a handful of the most moving, hilarious, beautiful and intriguing letters for us.
