Writing is living! We, as writers, experience everything twice. Once in reality and once in that mirror which reflects our life back to us and those who read our work. But with advancing technology, pen and paper — the most visceral means by which we leave track of our existence — slowly becomes obsolete. This is what The Magic of Handwriting: The Correa do Lago Collection sets out to reverse through letters, manuscripts, inscribed photographs, and drawings.
The 140 extraordinary selections gathered in The Magic of Handwriting include letters by Lucrezia Borgia, Vincent van Gogh, Emily Dickinson, annotated sketches by Michelangelo, Jean Cocteau, and Charlie Chaplin, and manuscripts by Giacomo Puccini, Jorge Luis Borges, and Marcel Proust.
