Currently seeking a French pen pal

Posted in News by Nneoma Ulu on December 7, 2009

I’ve always been a fan of snail mail. There is nothing like receiving a handwritten letter from a friend – it is more than just a letter, it’s like a keepsake. Alber Elbaz of Lanvin seems to share my thinking with his creation of 2 stamps for the French postal service, La Poste, as part of the celebration to commemorate Lanvin’s 120th anniversary. There will also be pencils, paper presses and notebooks sold at the post office based on Rue des Mathurins in Paris and on La Poste’s website.

Maybe it’s time to take up stamp collecting?

Any French ladies or gentlemen looking for a British penpal, please feel free to contact me for regular handwritten interaction.

    These stamps are great, such an awesome idea. I love getting letters too, especially cards, when people send them just because it reminds them of you. Lovely.
