Charles Morrison Hand Writes Four Letters a Day, with Files of Hundreds of Writing Topic Inspirations
Dream of the day when your schedule yields enough time to include handwritten correspondence? We’ve just come across the amazing Charles Morrison, who devotes a few hours every morning to write (with a calligraphy pen and bottled ink) around 4 letters a day to a cycle of 106 people. He finds inspiration from hundreds of ideas he collects from his voluminous library of dictionaries. Charles has such a passion for writing that we’d simply love to shake his hand (in awe). Here’s the Creative Mornings talk on how he got started, his process, and why he enjoys it so. There are many great quotes in this lecture as well. When he said, “I love paper – I really love fine paper…” all of us here at European Paper were naturally aligned.
