More love letters

I’ve made collections of small envelopes using love letters written during World War II. The writer, an aircraft engineer, wrote to his love two or three times a week.

I hope that people who see the work will think that I’ve given the letters a new life.

Exhibition 1-26 Feb at Atelier, Barnstaple
