Sadly, some Mail Art folks these days don't even acknowledge what you send them, I've learned. More specifically, no replies from people who've requested Mail Art be sent them. Very much in bad taste!

I love this little book! Oh, to have the ability to care so much about the little details of one's stationery. Oh, and it would be awfully nice to have a yacht, a club and need to travel for so long that it requires stationery. That would be wonderful.

Ach! I collect etiquette books and mail related everything. This book is so unbelievably a me book I am kind of weepy I don't have one. Can you give us the full publishing info & bindery? I absolutely need to attempt to find a copy of this.

Would be a great candidate for facsimile as these kinds of books are so often redone as curiosities for modern readers.

Well it certainly makes just such good sense to have different stationary for traveling vs. the yacht.... How else will you every remember where you are?? i have that problem all the time.... Hah! :)
