thoroughly addicted to letters of note, a site dedicated to showcasing fascinating correspondence, often providing behind the scenes looks at iconic events. there is always a bit of background info to provide context. so great. here are some of my favorites (so far!)

  1. omg when i was semi-fresh out of college, i applied to mad magazine and got a really cool rejection letter! i just realized, upon seeing this, that i threw out ALL of my old rejection letters LAST WEEK without looking at them... and without remembering about the mad one.


    great post!

  2. I so love the one to Warhol. Thats to cool. I bookmarked the site. Thanks for sharing!
