Since we aren't on every social media site, let us come to you. Enter your email below and we'll send you our monthly handwritten newsletter. It will be written during the hours of moonrise, and include featured posts, wild tangents, and rowdy stick figures. 

Keep the beautiful pen busy.

Brooklyn, NY

Handwritten is a place and space for pen and paper. We showcase things in handwriting, but also on handwriting. And so, you'll see dated letters and distant postcards alongside recent studies and typed stories.

This Side of the Address is an illustrated history of everyday conversation. Curated form the personal archives of Jim Ross, this exhibit examines patterns in correspondence across time, land, and language. Each week, we will publish a new cluster of postcards. For instance, postcards related to cats, beer, or children with dolls. Menial or momentous, these postcards and their entourage point to the precarious relationship between humans and technologies. Whether we write a private message on an unenclosed postcard or rifle off a text or direct message, we are still and always, at heart, a work in progress, constantly arcing to find the fastest route to the gulf of expression.
