As the last season of Downton Abbey is forging ahead at full throttle, I would be remiss not to mention all the LETTER WRITING that took place to the delight of scribblers everywhere.
I mean, their importance is unmistakable as they played a real supporting role, even holding a SILENT appearance right there in the beginning credits!
Ahhh, so beautiful, regal,
and yet subtle in their (supposedly)
I'd like to point out however, that these wax sealed, messengered, and folded-mounds-of-importance spoke boldly in their supporting role for the last 5 seasons.
Let's take a look at some key moments in front of the camera, shall we?
I wouldn't dream of taking anything away from the actors on the human side of things, but clearly, letters... played their role beautifully in this record breaking series. They brought suspense, drama (in postal fashion), and joy in bold inky style. Their sometimes dry wit, delivered on the parchest of papers, left us wanting more. I tip my hat to the cast and creative minds of Downton Abbey...
... But to the Letters (guest appearances as well as staff) I say, take a bow! It's the 21st century and you're still going strong. Making the world take note that scribbling is here to stay. You've still got it!
Whether Upstairs or Downstairs, you've done a smashing job. Made us quite proud. Ta!
Hello, I’m Nina, the maven behind the
IQS blog. I’m all about creativity (ya think?).
I work in several disciplines. So it's no surprise that the Art of Letter Writing would come knocking on my door. Smitten!
However, I did not want to simply add MailArt as a discipline to my website. Thus it became the IQS Blog within my site. And that is why there are TWO navigation menus. *Here’s a Tip: stick with the BLOG Menu in this Column. The main site menu will lead you astray into dark places where you will be screaming for help and no one will hear you.
