From the editors:

What does it mean to “take care,” especially on the page, as a send off? When someone says “take care,” it can be received as a poignant expression, something sincere. Yet it can also signify something cold and unfeeling—a colloquial conclusion to end a conversation with closure. From love letters and text messages to postcards and DMs, Take Care, explores the intimacy and distance created through correspondence in the likeness of the phrase’s multifaceted meanings on the page.
