Curiosities // The Letterhead

While out & about at garage sales a couple days ago, i ran into this gem. The book is simply titled The Letterhead by Ernst Lehner. It chronicles the general history of the letterhead & gives real modern samples. It is from 1955 & I am so happy I stumbled upon it. Its a real gem.

Each letterhead gives the information of the designer, company and the printer. There are all sorts of methods used for the letterheads too. There are a couple of letter-pressed ones in the bunch. It is just crazy the amount of detail & personality that is displayed through something so simple & everyday. It makes me yearn to have a need for a letterhead.
