In today’s email-centric world there doesn’t seem to much place for the humble letterhead, but in decades gone by they were as essential a business tool as a phone or a pen. A quality letterhead was a way of verifying the authenticity of a letter as well as the credentials of the sender and as a result, everyone had them.
This week Retronaut has been showcasing the letterheads of everyone from Adolf Hitler to David Bowie and, while they’re all fascinating, some of the most creative ones come from the legends of the entertainment industry. I’ve pulled out a few choice examples which I thought would be of interest to you dear Bunkerites. Who knows, if you’re old enough to have written a fan letter to one of these people, you may even have a genuine one of these kicking around somewhere!
