«Real letters, written by real people who preferred the sensual act of writing by hand, the delightfully languorous anticipation of the reply, to the reptilian coldness of the keyboard and instantaneity of the Internet —people for whom the act of writing was a deliberate choice and is some cases, one sensed, a matter of principle, a stand taken in favour of a life style not quite so determined by the race against time and the obligation to perform.»
