An Archive of Letterhead

This is so wonderful of someone to not only think of but take the gumption and do. This blog posts old letterhead, letterheady.com. The letterhead is from famous people, companies big or small, political groups and even organizations from history that we’d sooner not acknowledge (the Ku Klux Klan). Some of these designs are simple and beautiful. While others are complex or so busy that they leave very little space for the letter in which they are intended to host. Heres a few samples (most are ones that I liked).
The text in the footer reads, ‘wir schreiben alles klein, denn wir sparen damit zeit’, which translates as ‘we write everything small, thus saving time’.
Letterhead used by pioneering mentalist ‘The Amazing Dunninger’ in 1914.
The letterhead of legendary musician Louis Armstrong featured just his unique nickname, ‘Satchmo’; an abbreviation of ‘Satchel Mouth’.
