An Explorer's Tale

Delivered Monthly

Join The Journey

Do you love to travel and have an insatiable sense of adventure? Do you miss the days of receiving real letters in the mail?

Welcome to Letters From Afar, the ongoing story of an explorer traveling the world. Each month, as she wanders around the globe, Isabelle will write you a letter at every stop to tell you all about it. Accompanied by vibrant illustrations, field notes, and a map, your monthly letter will whisk you away on a literary adventure to a land far, far away.

You'll learn about each destination's culture, cuisine, wildlife, landmarks, oddities, heritage, and more! You'll explore castles, trek up mountains, visit souks, wander forests, study ruins, partake in festivals, and sail the seven seas... all from your favorite armchair whilst sipping a cup of tea.

Letters From Afar is an enchanting and nostalgic way to learn about the world. Join thousands around the globe and get ready to check your mailbox.
