Event description
A lecture by Carl Rohrs about the 25th edition of the Speedball Textbook

About this Event

This lecture is for Friends of Calligraphy members only.

Carl Rohrs will give us a peek into the creation of the 25th edition of the iconic Speedball Textbook, a little history in- and outside of its tiny but mighty 105-year-old pages, and a more complete look at the work of some of the artists who contributed to this and previous versions, along with a few detours through related tangents. Because of its long history and the large number of contributors, there are many different stories to be told. Carl has created three different presentations (so far) for Calligraphy Italia, the Chicago Calligraphy Collective and FOC, his beloved home guild.

The lecture will be recorded; The lecture will be recorded; A link to a recording of the presentation will be sent in the summer to all FOC members who register for the event.

Carl was the 25th’s designer and co-editor (along with Suzanne Cunningham & Sachin Shah).
