Well over 100 objects were scanned and placed in a series of short essays by various authors.


Robert Amos wrote a very nice review of the book in Victoria’s Times Colonist newspaper. In it he says:

Fronts of Modernity was beautifully designed by Clint Hutzulak at Rayola Creative, and the look of the book alone makes it worthy of note in this art column. Hundreds of colour illustrations presented in an engaging layout give us a sense of the stationery, the postmarks and handwriting in these gems of correspondence.
