Letterheads of the many circuses are something I have thoroughly enjoyed over the years. Occassionally, one will have a printer's mark in it but for the most part, they are all unmarked as to who produced them.
They were meant to be informative first and then they started becoming works of art. With Brilliant shades of Reds, Blues, and Golds, they captivated the imagination as soon as one laid their eyes upon them. Some shows had one or two letterheads and that was all they ever used while shows like Ringling came up with a new design just about yearly.
The ones posted here today are what I call a clip. They are the artwork part of the paper and someone has cut off all the remaining paper.
I also want to apologize to a few of you who sent in comments this week. When blogger went down this week and wouldn't let me post them, they became obsolete and now I get a message saying they no longer exist.
