Discover the freedom of stepping off-line through the romantic pages of the type-written note...
On January 1, 2012 Christina Crook disabled the data on her iPhone, turned-off her e-mail, and said goodbye to the Internet for 31 days. She chronicled the journey with a letter a day, complete with news clippings, quotes and thoughts on technology. Each letter was hand- or type-written, mailed, then scanned and posted by her friend, Marisa Ducklow, creating a conversation between friends and open to the world at large.
This 75-page soft cover book features 31 letters, rich original photography, quotes on technology and a recommended reading list.
