NapierTown-3 Letterhead

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Osho lived in Yogesh Bhavan, 115, Napier Town in Jabalpur, for some eight years, leaving sometime in mid-1968. He went through many letterheads during this time, almost all showing this address but most also emphasizing other features besides the plain address, so they have been put in different categories. There were the Mahakoshal group (example), featuring his teaching position at Mahakoshal Arts College, the group introducing his org Jeevan Jagriti Kendra (example), and so on.

In all there were five "pure" Napier Town letterheads, with only his name and address for information content. This was the third. The 4th and 5th were embellished with images, so this was the last one with only text. As it happens, it was also the simplest, in terms of visual presentation. The wildly in-your-face font for his name in NapierTown-2 Letterhead and the flowery scrolls of NapierTown-1 Letterhead's fonts make this one a real back-to-basics model.

See the main Letterheads page for all his letterheads, and a discussion of their features.

In this simple letterhead, all content is in Devanagari script.
In the upper left corner we have:

Acharya Rajneesh

In the upper right:

115, Napier Town
Jabalpur, (M.P.)
