My parents first met as pen pals. And they still have the love letters they sent to each other—letters that traveled across the world, between the United States and the Philippines. Because of their love story, I’ve always been interested in the concept of love letters. So, when I got the itch to do a new personal project, I came up with the idea to design a book about famous love letters. These are mockups for a dummy book by “Esme Ash-Pere” (an anagram of Aphee Messer).
