How much does a love letter cost?
Between March and November 2011, I exchanged hundreds of emails with someone I was falling in love with, and who was falling in love with me, and who is no longer a part of my life.
I don't know how else to measure the value of a love letter, or the time I spent on them and with them, without reading them again.
So I want to send them again.
What Price Love? is an email love letter subscription, lasting nine months. Subscribers will receive the exact email I sent in 2011 in their inbox now in 2013 (e.g., what I wrote on the morning of March 8th before I went to work, you'll get that, too, and at the same time). It's like I am writing to you.
How often will they come? The letters will ebb and flow: that first burst of getting to know one another, the rush of obsession, the pace slowing, and then, that's it. They stop.
You'll enter into the correspondence at the time you subscribe, and get to/have to wait between love letters the same way their object did.
I'll get to go back through the letters with you.
Together we'll decide what love letters are worth.
