eggpress.com and chronicle books have some excellent things. I am a stationary freak- I collect it too... although I never seem to use it.

As for books, if you're near a good library you could check out the 2005 and previous D&AD Annuals and Graphis Design Annuals. If my memory serves me right there is some good examples in there.

I would definitely check out the Graphis Books. Also some of the David Carter books have letterhead samples. Oh and I believe it is "stationery", with an "e" not an "a". My old AD used to get on me about that all the time.

Cheers guys.

The reason I ask is that I love stationery but it always seems to be the part that takes me the longest to produce and I am least happy with in the end.

Also are there any rules that may help me?

Oh what a terrible shame - Graphis redesigned their absolutely gorgeous web site and now iti's completely generic. But yes, you could check out their Letterhead 5 and 6 books. They ain't bloody cheap tho.

Rockport also publishes Letterhead books and won't set you back as far as the Graphis titles.
