This “M” is a Work of Art
When I buy a piece of handwritten ephemera, it’s because something caught my eye: a decorative swirl, a unique number, an unusual color ink. Other times, it is because one individual letter is so spectacularly beautiful, buying it is like acquiring a work of art.
That’s the case with this envelope from 1901 mailed to Stockholm. The “M” reminded me of a bird wing. What do you think of the “M” ( … or the swashy “K” or “A” or “S” or “G”)?
