From the Head


As we are occasionally lax in pointing out, a real sense of personal style goes way beyond knowing what to buy. Consider, for instance, the world of personalized letterheads, as compiled here. Our favorite so far is this one from street-art saint Keith Haring—it sums up his mix of business sense and childlike enthusiasm just about perfectly—but there’s plenty more where that came from, ranging from vintage woodblock illustrations to minimal celebrity signatures. It’s a good idea, and with fewer and fewer non-electronic letter writers left around, it’s only getting better.
