Stationery, in some form or fashion, can be found stashed away in a preppy’s desk at any given moment. It’s an essential habit. Penning proper correspondence, whether it be thank you notes, a memo, or a handwritten letter to a long time pal is practically a second language by adolescence. Even though it seems like we slap our monograms on everything, we don’t. Traditionally, there are only certain items that should be monogrammed—stationery being one of them. Andy Warhol’s (an aforementioned personal style icon) undated stationery gives typography center stage in soothing tones of blue and green. It also communicated quite effectively who he was as an individual before he would ever scrawl his first word.
