Well I forgot my camera again today so no images of the lovely new archive. So, as a quick post I thought I'd share this striking image from a 1984 aerogramme sent to Lindsay Anderson. It is promoting the 1984 US Olympics (as you can see!) and there are quite a few of these in the collection, sent by different people. I really like all the bright colours and the design and I think it would be so nice to receive a letter dressed up like that. I was talking to someone last night about the lost art of letter writing - well actually not quite so lost, I don't think, as I know that me and my friends often write letters to each other, send cards, postcards and Cd's etc. There is really something so wonderful about receiving a letter that is quite different than online communication. I know people still use the post for communicating but only as one of many forms of communication and this is what is so exciting nowadays- the myriad of ways in which people can speak to each other.
Now I'm off back to the archives store to carry on with organising all the boxes in the Lindsay Anderson Archive - it's very satisfying to see it all in its new home!
