The writing of letters has been fading in popularity for years now. Emailing, tweeting and texting have put paid to many people sitting down to write and letter and then off to the post office, to post it.

But Shaun Usher's website, lettersofnote.com has proved hugely popular.

He has a variety of correspondence on his site, letters he believes deserve a wider audience, not just handwritten notes, but also postcards, telegrams, faxes, and memos.

His first book - Letters of Note was a best seller, and he's followed that up with the newly released More Letters of Note, which includes some notes penned by political figures, musicians, authors and others just by everyday people.

Shaun Usher talks to Kathryn Ryan.
