Father and exhibition designer Robert Guest has gotten up every morning of every school day and written letters to his children for the past 15 years. His wife Gloria collected thousands of these letters, from lunchboxes and laundry, and now you can read them in Issue 10 of Esopus magazine.
Home life can be so mundane, so everyday and overlooked. But I love the idea of this father taking a moment in the mundane of every morning to connect with his children through the intimacy of personal letters. I can only imagine they're full of life and love and home.
