Letterheady is an online homage to “offline correspondence; specifically letters. However, here at Letterheady we don’t care about the letter’s content. Just its design,” notes its website. And so, here is a resource and a community for the diehard and closet letter-heads. What’s more these are not just the designer heads we know and love, but a range of celebrity, business, and others that have visual appeal, like the Hal Roach Studios beauty above (look at Pete the dog) and the Johnny Cash one below (top) and Felix le Chat (bottom). I’ll let you be surprised by the others (but at the very bottom is the uncredited Paul Rand letterhead for Portfolio magazine).
