i don’t collect business cards but i have many. here is the business card of walter w ballmer, the designer of the olivetti logo i am familiar with. i have no idea what he is referring to when he says “i’ve had much pleasure to receive some of your graphic works.” i found this in a book on design. there was no indication that the book belonged to mr ballmer, but i added it to my collection of olivetti ephemera. this is not a huge category but, sadly perhaps, it is yet another category. the collection ranges from trash cans designed by sottass to a few choice typewriters and olivetti ads that span the 40s-70s. (many can be seen here.) felix has a wonderful example of mr ballmer’s work. i’ll scan some of my ads that don’t seem to be a part of this group. it’s nice to know that a least something is not on the web. or maybe i just didn’t look hard enough. that is something of which I can’t usually be accused.
