24th Speedball Textbook – Call For Entry

The following information was released for your consideration. For more information, follow the link below.

Dear Friends,
Speedball just gave us the go ahead to begin work on an expanded full color edition of the 24th Speedball Textbook, which will be released in 2015 to coincide with the 100th Anniversary of the book’s debut!

In addition to some updated and new exemplars, the “Centennial Edition” will feature an expanded history section showcasing additional pages from older editions as well as all new artwork in the “Gallery” and “Logo & Design” sections, and much more!We are working on an official ‘call-for-entries’ with more detailed information, which will be posted on the Speedball Art Products website (www.speedballart.com) the first week in September. If you or someone you know would like to receive a call-for-entry via e-mail, please send the e-mail address to speedballtextbook@speedballart.com.In conjunction with the new book, we are planning a website which will have instructional videos and copies of as many of the older editions as we can locate. We are hoping to find someone with copies of the first seven editions (they are horizontal), so please let us know if you have any of these early treasures.The Speedball Textbook book has always been a reflection of the lettering of its time. This special Centennial Edition is our collective legacy – a record of lettering today and an invaluable resource for students of all ages and levels. We invite you to be part of it, and look forward to receiving your suggestions and submissions next month. Please do NOT send any artwork at this time.

All the best,

Joanne Fink & Judy Kastin
