rob roy kelly

this is the original logo for the guthrie theatre in minneapolis. when i was a kid, i remember loving the logo. they have a new one now. but, something about the ribbons on the ornament stamps made me think about this logo. i love the internet because it only took a few clicks to find the logo and learn all kinds of interesting things about the designer, rob roy kelly. he made an enormous contribution to design, design schools and students. i did not see any envelopes. but, there was one nice section on obsessions. he collected wood type and old kitchen ware. he also had 4 favorite recipes listed.

so here is my guthrie inspired envelope.

the link above will take you to John Neal's Facebook page, where you will see a row of envelopes at the top. Click on the first envelope and you can flip through many beautiful envelopes and also some pages from books and a few book covers. When you get to the pages and covers, keep flipping. More envelopes show up later.
