Hello, General Managers!
My name is Ari Siegel, and I am the Founder and CEO of History by Mail, a monthly subscription service for reproductions of historical letters and documents. Each letter comes with a separate document explaining the context of the letter including its author, recipient, and relevance to the events of its time, as well as a transcription when necessary.
History By Mail makes an excellent gift for history buffs of all shapes and sizes.
Our team of history enthusiasts works with archivists to select fascinating documents from the world’s best archives and obtain the rights to use each document. A team of graphic designers then creates replicas which are delivered to subscribers on high-quality paper along with a context document.
