Letterheady

Philippe Apeloig Frank Lloyd Wright letterhead



Philippe Apeloig / Frank Lloyd Wright 

Have you seen Letterheady? I heard about it from a friend with an extensive paper collection and expert letterpress friends at VoltaPress. It's a totally fascinating, seemingly endless collection of the letterhead designs of famous people and companies (and a clever neologism: adj. overcome by a strong emotion due to a letterhead design). If you love fonts, paper, stationery, or glimpses into the private effects of notables, head over there and get ready to scroll for hours. It's cool to see how letterhead itself can be funny, artful, striking, unexpected, professional, irreverent, and how it reflects the persona of the person who writes on it. Some favorites:

  1. Excellent work. Please tell me how do you do it? What do you use for this? I do not understand how to do it, I download them here http://www.poweredtemplate.com/brochure-templates/letterheads/index.html. I often use them in their work. If I could do them myself, I would have been happy.
