At EC One we love receiving a good letter from an old friend, Nicolla’s work made us harp for the bygone era of letter writing. Nicolla’s “With Love” collection celebrates the nostalgia of letter writing, in Nicola’s own words….
The inspiration behind my work is the ‘lost art of letter writing’. I found some postcards and letters in an antiques shop that had been written in 1908, one of these was just inviting a friend to tea! This made me think we don’t really send letters to each other anymore just keep in touch; it’s a quick email or text, nothing that will be still around in 100 years. The illegible hand writing on these postcards which were signed with love and lots of x’s is represented in my With Love collection which randomly spells out ‘with love’, ‘love’ and groups of x’s.
