About Of Lost Time
Of Lost Time is a portal to exploring our fascination with the past, connecting audiences with the people, correspondence, and events lost to the sands of time. Accordingly, OLT spotlights our common humanity through the ages, fostering empathy with those that came before us.
To recover new, lost or forgotten views on remarkable moments in history, OLT are making use of the most intimate archives of human thought over time; letters. OLT are publishing anthologies of letters along thematic lines, featuring correspondence by artists, scientists, philosophers, athletes, politicians, and others. These include Letters for the Ages: Sport, Letters for the Ages: Behind Bars and Letters for the Ages: Churchill. Each collection tells the story of its theme through almost 100 remarkable letters.
Complementing this, Of Lost Time’s Letters for the Ages video series sheds light on some of the greatest letters from history and the stories behind them.
Although young, Of Lost Time strives to build a community of those yearning to connect with the past, providing a hub where stories and fragments of history can be explored and shared.
