B4346. The Speedball Textbook 25th Edition. 2021. 120pp. 5.5"x8.25". Spiralbound

This new edition features a lay-flat spiral binding, pages of instruction and alphabets (medieval to modern), and inspiring examples of calligraphy in use.

Co-editors Suzanne Cunningham, Sachin Shah, and Carl Rohrs worked tirelessly to create a manual that preserves the historical elements but includes the modern technical influences that are so visible in today's scripts. The result is a 120-page book featuring new exemplars, new insight, and previously unseen works from any one of over 75 world-class contributing artists, making it among the very best editions of this time-honored book. This has always been a must-buy book for broad-edge calligraphers, from beginner through advanced. The new 25-page section on the pointed pen expands its appeal. The Speedball Textbook was first published in 1915.

    Posted by Petrona Charles on Feb 26th 2022

    I have been collecting and using Speedball Textbooks for over 50 years. This edition has outdone itself for the beauty, layout, and examples from recognized master calligraphers. The emphasis on pointed pen calligraphy is especially appreciated.

    Loved the new Speedball book - so much in it! As always with my orders, the packing with the book and 2 other items was super-fantastic, the timeliness of receipt of order on target, and the ease to order from you in general is always great. Thanks.

    I'm amazed at all the incredible works shown in the book. The Speedball Textbook was my first lettering book back in the 1970s.

    This newest edition is superb! I like that the focus is on contemporary calligraphy...and the 21-page section on pointed pen is a great addition.
