A New Kind of Postal Service: Letterpress Correspondence from Jon Beacham

January 9, 2012

the brother in elysium correspondence subscription!

Jon Beacham really wants to talk pleasantries with you over a warm cup of tea.

But he’ll settle for sending you love notes of sorts.

The cordial bookmonger-turned-letterpress artisan has launched a new correspondence subscription to bring people closer together and share his adoration of the written word.

Here’s how it works: Send $125 to Beacham, and he’ll mail you five pieces of art and letterpress ephemera over the course of a year. The postal curiosities are never repeated and range from poems and books to collages and poster-size broadsides.

Give Beacham insight into your interests (Hemingway novels, antique maps), and he’ll do his best to customize deliveries. More often than not, though, they’re dictated by whatever he’s working on at the moment.

Minus the tea bag.

To subscribe, mail payment and address details to Jon Beacham, 190 Bedford Avenue, number 228, Brooklyn, New York 11249. For more information, go to thebrotherinelysium.com.
