"why do handwritten manuscripts set record prices today? why is the enthusiastic interest in handwritten things continuing to grow? the answer comes naturally. that is, every handwritten document has traces of human beings. in the flood of e-mail, we modern people are impressed by the handwritten text that was stored with a pen, comparable to the paleontologists who discovered the footprints of mammoths. suppose you see a few lines of handwritten text. the paper on which it was written was touched by the writer's hand running the pen before our eyes touched it. the ancient ippen comes comes back to life, and the voices of the ancestors can be heard in echoes. this is an exciting moment. my dream this time was to deliver a handwritten copy to all readers of "le monde d'hermes". but one day scientific advances may achieve the feat of "graphology". waiting for that day to come, for now i thank gutenberg. i'm happy that your eyes touch the pages that start here as they are. as you can see, it's a normally printed message, but that doesn't mean it's not without its personality. it's not without love. hermès wholeheartedly brings you a world of beauty, passion, respect for the past, and hope for the future." (translated from japanese)
