Charles Russell’s Letters

IMG_6091The 100 Best Illustrated Letters of Charles M. Russell is a fascinating book.  The letters provide unique insights into the American West in the late-1800’s.  What makes the letters remarkable to me are the illustrations Russel added to tell a richer and more colorful story.  The drawings themselves illuminate a deep, focused experience.  Russell’s work is a great reminder that when we tell our stories the use of images adds exponential value.
