In an effort to preserve people's voices through their handwriting, Tanner Woodford (executive director of ChiDM) has sent hundreds of letters to people across all walks of life, asking a broad, philosophical question.
"What's worth preserving?"
Some writers shared a few simple words, while others penned long essays. The answers were wildly different—from fountain pens to expressions of true love, and the pursuit of question. A few of the 75 respondents: Elizabeth Crane (The History of Great Things), Dave Eggers (McSweeney's), Jane Goodall (UN Messenger of Peace), Debbie Millman (Design Matters), and Christoph Niemann (New York Times).
The first collection of 50 letters was published on Kickstarter, where 300 backers pledged $22,455. It's also available for pre-order here for a limited time, shipping before the holidays.
