Vintage 1952 Speedball Lettering Poster & Design Book (Price Typo Fixed)

Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a Speedball Lettering and Poster Design how to book published in 1952 authored by Ross F. George and the Hunt Pen Company. I found it while going through my Dad's things after he passed. He used it quite heavily and he made money for medical school making signs and posters for a print shop in Denver during the 1950's. The cover is not in great shape and there are India ink stains on it and a few red stains on the inside as well. The cover does have a tear near the edge. The rest of the insides are in good condition considering how hard this paperback book was used. It is a classic for calligraphy collectors or people that want to copy the lettering for scrapbook making and prints arts. I have only seen one other advertised for sale and none of the bookstores seem to have it.
