  • One Hundred Loose Leaf Lessons in Lettering with Pen & Brush by William Hugh Gordon; 1920.

    Mr. Gordon not only created and introduced the Speedball pen line in 1915, he was also published as a lettering expert apart from the Speedball project. Depicted is a folio of practice pages capitalizing, no doubt, upon the popular success of his

    book, Modernized Methods in the Art & Practise of Lettering for Commercial Purposes two years earlier, in 1918. This presentation likely contributed to the decision, around the same time, to issue a smaller loose leaf set of lettering lessons for Speedball, authored by Gordons partner, Ross F. George - eventually the single name identified with Speedball for over 40 years.
