About Books of Note

Shaun Usher lives for letters, lists, and beautiful books.

In 2009, his love of correspondence resulted in the launch of Letters of Note, an online museum of notable letters which to date has been visited almost 100 million times. Four years later, that website spawned a much-anticipated book of the same name, the first of three books of note to be crowdfunded with Unbound; it was published in 2013 to widespread acclaim and has since become an international bestseller. The follow-up volume, More Letters of Note, was published in 2015. When he isn’t hunting for intriguing letters, Shaun can often be found obsessing over lists. His Lists of Note website launched in 2011; the Lists of Note book followed in 2014.
