Who Knew?: Letterhead

From top: Marlene Deitrich, Calvin Klein, Andy Warhol, David Bowie, Elizabeth Taylor, Whitney Houston, The Muppets, Marilyn Monroe (my favorite!)

Well I have a new obsession: Letterheady. This impeccably edited tumblr is dedicated to the personal letterhead of celebrities', authors', inventors' through the years. Everyone from Thomas Edison to Van Halen is covered. It's pretty incredible to catch a glimpse into the daily life of Steve Martin, Harry Houdini or Helen Gurley Brown (she was the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan for 32 years). Now I'm craving a set of my own, maybe a minimal letter press like Marilyn Monroe's. Her letterhead is just breathtaking. Fair warning: this blog will eat up the rest of your afternoon.
