The magic of
A Letter

In our increasingly digital world, Letters From Afar brings back the charm of receiving a real letter.

Designed for the globetrotters at heart, these letters bring a spark of adventure right to your mailbox.

Letters From Afar is the ongoing story of an explorer traveling the world.

Each month, open your mailbox to find an envelope filled with a vibrantly illustrated letter, field notes, and a map.

You'll learn about different cultures, cuisines, wildlife, landmarks, oddities, heritages, 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 the comfort of your home.

What's Included?

The Adventure

A beautifully illustrated, double-sided letter that will transport you to a whole new place!

The Field Notes

Doodles and fun facts that are sure to teach you something new!

The Map

On the reverse side of the field notes is a custom, vintage-replica map.
