The Speedball Textbook 24th Edition

First published in 1915 by Ross F. George, The Speedball Textbook is the superlative resource for artists and letterers of all ages and skill levels. In celebration of the 100th year anniversary of the first edition's debut, Speedball is proud to announce the release of this Centennial Edition.

Featuring the vision of new co-editors Angela Vangalis and Randall Hasson, the 24th Edition contains enhanced content that provides readers with instruction and inspiration in techniques and styles ranging from medieval to modern. It showcases the work of 70 of the most well-known and well-respected scribes from around the world.

This special edition contains historical tributes from cover to cover. The font used for the cover is Ross George's Sho Card Gothic style alphabet, first appearing in the 12th Edition (1933) and one of the most recognizable fonts. The remaining cover elements pay tribute to other poignant "moments" in the Speedball lettering history.

This edition contains a new, dedicated pointed pen section, with 15 pages of techniques, alphabets, and practice exercises — a first for any Speedball textbook. There are also all-new sections on chalkboard lettering, sign making, comics, and more.

Editors — Angela Vangalis and Randall Hasson.

Paperback. 120 pages. 9" × 5½" (23 cm × 14 cm).
