I have a small collection of antique French letters dated from the 19th century. You see, I have this thing for the past and when I came across these handwritten old letters in a small antique shop in The Hague I simply could not resist purchasing them.
There is something mystical about them: these letters were written about 200 years ago. Who wrote them, who read them, what was their relationship, what did their lives look like, did they live long, did they have children, and so forth and so forth. I will never know the answers to all these questions.
Anyways, I scanned these letters digitally and put them in my Etsy shop as printables. You could use them in various art projects like art journaling or collage (see photo below).
