In the modern world, even Albert Einstein would have had to have put up with a bit of networking. And William Shakespeare would probably have had to attend a few seminars to try and persuade a publisher to take a chance on his new stories.

Online print and stationary company moo.com have created these fantastic letterheads and business cards, to imagine how the great communicators and thinkers of the past would have presented themselves to potential clients and contacts.

Ernest Hemmingway, Benjamin Franklin, Charles Darwin and many more are all represented below with appropriate branding; they'd have probably been pretty good value on Twitter too.
