Sam Roberts at Better Letters did a video with the folks at Letterform Archive on Ross George, the creator of the Speedball pen and the classic Speedball Textbook. The book was first published in 1915 and was a key resource for showcard writers and lettering artists for decades. It was updated and revised many times over the years and is now in its 25th edition.

If you love letters and lettering, you’ll enjoy seeing this video on the Ross F. George collection. It may even make you dig out your Speedball pens and do some lettering.
