There are Dead Heads, Dope Heads, Knuckle Heads, Screw Heads, Shower Heads, Sprinkler Heads, Bald Heads, Jar Heads and Letterheads. The latter is among the small gems of graphic design. These are from a 1932 sample book published in England and used by a small job printer to sell his services. Some are quite heady.
