The Van Gogh Letter Sketches

A few people were lucky enough to be pan pals of a sort with Vincent Van Gogh. Van Gogh often added sketches or paintings to his letters, to illustrate what he wrote about. BibliOdyssey has a collection of these letter sketches, along with the letters that accompanied them. Link

For almost 20 years, I was fortunate enough to correspond via snail mail with a terrifically gifted artist friend who liberally illustrated his letters (written in gorgeous cursive, too) with wonderful sketches of whatever he was writing about -- needless to say, I treasure them (alas, we mostly talk on the phone now).

All his letters are just published on the web after a research of 15 years. Check them out here: http://www.vangoghletters.org/vg/
This publication is accompanied by a beautiful exhibition in the van Gogh museum in Amsterdam.

love it!
A friend of mine often writes on a notecard that she's illustrated with a pen and ink (sometimes watercolor) sketch... I save them!
