Because such a huge chunk of our work and social interactions take place online these days, business cards are becoming a little bit obsolete. Just a decade or so ago, you needed a business card to make your name, but nowadays it’s much more important to have a website, Twitter account, Facebook page or a LinkedIn profile!
Despite this, Business cards, especially the more carefully thought out ones, can give us a fantastic insight into the person who owns them. Just take a look at this collection here, which recently emerged on the internet and belong to some of the world’s most famous folks from entrepreneurial tech geniuses like Larry Page and Mark Zuckerberg to renowned escapologist Houdini and former President Abraham Lincoln.
I imagine any budding business card collectors would just love to get their hands on this lot!
