Celebrating the Pony Express

Today marks the 155th anniversary of the Pony Express, which was pivotal in increasing the speed of mail delivery in the U.S. I think it must have been an exciting time in which to send mail, as you could not only send/ receive mail within 14 days, but there certainly was an added element of…

Just imagining all that mail being sent around the world is such a wonderful feeling. Once I have finished designing all of the letters assigned…
