A new exhibit, Ink to Paper: Exploring the Advancement of Letter Writing and its Uses, has just opened at the Madison County Archival Library at 801 N. Main Street, Edwardsville. In the exhibit, David Thompson, explores something that is becoming a lost art: letters. The exhibit looks at the instruments used to write them, the various types of letters, and even the stamps that were used to send letters. Many items in the exhibit come from the recently donated Flagg Collection.
