eggpress.com and chronicle books have some excellent things. I am a stationary freak- I collect it too... although I never seem to use it.

As for books, if you're near a good library you could check out the 2005 and previous D&AD Annuals and Graphis Design Annuals. If my memory serves me right there is some good examples in there.

I would definitely check out the Graphis Books. Also some of the David Carter books have letterhead samples. Oh and I believe it is "stationery", with an "e" not an "a". My old AD used to get on me about that all the time.

check out 1,000 Graphic Elements. Some fine examples of unique stationary.

Cheers guys.

The reason I ask is that I love stationery but it always seems to be the part that takes me the longest to produce and I am least happy with in the end.

Also are there any rules that may help me?

Oh what a terrible shame - Graphis redesigned their absolutely gorgeous web site and now iti's completely generic. But yes, you could check out their Letterhead 5 and 6 books. They ain't bloody cheap tho.

Rockport also publishes Letterhead books and won't set you back as far as the Graphis titles.
