Individually, every Teochew Letter was once the private correspondence between a Teochew emigrant and his family. Collectively, they now form a well-preserved and unparalleled treasure of records of human and social history. The cover, content, calligraphy, literary expression, stamps, postmarks, and even type of paper, make every letter a piece of relic, bearing traces of culture, time and space unique to itself. This section "Beyond Words" help us see beyond written words, messages transmitted through the letters of our forebears.
