Warm wishes from Hoxton Square, where we’re bracing ourselves for a cold snap in this corner of the world. With a forecast of snowfall and gales, Arctic blasts and freezing fog here in the UK, we’re inclined to batten down the hatches and settle down with a good book. And we have just the antidote to bad weather and troubled times.
Between the spring of 1945 and the autumn of 1947 Charles Phillipson wrote a series of 150 illustrated letters to his young son Michael. Now these delightful, quirky letters, designed to whet Michael’s appetite for reading, have been gathered together in Letters to Michael. This charming cloth-bound hardback edition is full of the lightness and humour Charles found in everyday situations.
We may be on the verge of blizzards here but we do have readers all across the globe, many of whom will be basking in sunshine or seeking shade. Please scroll down the newsletter for some welcome postcards from far-flung Foxed readers – corresponding with you all, wherever you may be, is our favourite part of the job.
With best wishes, as ever, from the SF office staff
