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.

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.

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