How does it work?

Adventure letters are sent out by mail on the 1st of every month. For example, if you subscribe on February 17th, your letter will be sent out on March 1st. For Past Letters, they are already written. You can expect it in the mail within 48 hours.


What are the letters about? 

The letters are a beautiful double sided document about an unusual place or event. Think of it as a history lesson told from an eyewitness point of view – with facts and anecdotes. We might visit ossuaries, go to controversial Rock & Roll events, sail with pirates or discover intriguing folktales. It's about places that trigger curiosity!


Still not sure what you'll get?

You can try out Snail Mail Chronicles by taking a Recurring Letter Subscription that you can cancel anytime.


Can I give a subscription as a gift?

Yes, these subscriptions make for original gifts. Simply enter the address of the receiver as the mailing address. We can send you a certificate that you can print and give to the recipient so that they know they will start receiving letters.


Who is Dorian?

Dorian is a fictional writer and social explorer, who travels the world to investigate the mysterious and to acquaint us with the strange. He will visit peculiar places and attend events of historical significance. Via snail mail, he'll share his unique adventures. His accounts are both entertaining and educational.


Are these letters suitable for children?

The letters are written by an adult for an adult audience. With this said, there is nothing inappropriate in these letters. Only a parent can judge if these letters can be of interest to their child. I would recommend it for a teenage audience and up.
