New York City is, as you read this, being papered with love. Love letters to its bookstores and bodegas and coffee shops and graffiti and everything in between…
Last weekend, The Love Lettering Project headed down to NYC for a pop-up event with Artery – a performing arts series that brings incredible art to unconventional spaces (because, as they believe, every space is a stage!) Man oh man – SO! MUCH! FUN!!!
One particular letter ended up at the Strand Bookstore, one of the most incredible bookstores every (there are 18 MILES of books!)
From the letter writer/hider: To be walking around a place I love, with books I love, with the love letter in my bag, waiting for a moment, to tuck it away in just the right corner…..what a gift.
There’ll be many more NY letters to come! Follow along on Instagram: @loveletteringproject
I know love letters aren’t going fix what’s going on in the world at the moment, but I truly do believe that connecting with our immediate surroundings, our homes, our neighbourhoods, and our neighbours matters, especially now. And talking about and sharing that love, that compassion, that goodness in the face of such fear and hatred matters even more.
