I am a 24 year old hand-lettering aficionado and antiquarian junk collector extraordinaire from Neptune City, New Jersey. I have an extensive music collection and an ever growing library of sign-painting and lettering books. I’m also a connoisseur of screen-printed posters and an avid animal lover and travel enthusiast.

…and sometimes out on those Turkey farms you find awesome rusted out old wagons with great gritty type.

Sometimes I do different stuff then drawing letters and buying books…for example today I helped to build and paint a shelter for Pebbles the rescued turkey.

New to #letteringlibrary this week - The Standard American Drawing and Lettering Book - The Modern Art or Sign-Writing. It’s a first edition from 1911 by Peter Idarius.

This is a really nice oversized alphabet book tailored towards the sign-painter/sign-writer that rivals some of the better known books of its kind. There are few second editions that were published one year later in 1912 with a different cover floating around ebay and abebooks if any of you feel like buying up your own copy. This will be part of October’s drop most likely.

Another old design I did for Harley-Davidson. I would change the lettering a bit in hindsight, but hey.

So, I have a book filled with embossed monograms - one section actually even has Greek and Russian characters. Would any or many of you be interested in seeing this book as part of the next release on #letteringlibrary ?

I just got in a MASSIVE type catalog from The Headliners that has probably over 1000 fonts in it along with killer specimens opposite the type samples on every page. This book defines 50’s and 60’s type better than anything else I’ve ever seen. I have to track down some more info on this one and see if I can share some more of it sometime.

Tiny little thing I made for part of a @grit_skateboards t-shirt a while back. I just came across the sketch again and I still dig it.

A smattering of flea market finds from this weekend. The Hexagob Crayons box is still totally full.

Stumbled across this beauty completely by chance today in Hazelton PA - had to park the car and walk back to check it out it more closely. I’m not sure what exactly Studebaket once used this property for but I love their cars and had snap this shot. The property is being repossessed due to back taxes, would be a shame if they tore it down.

Beautiful bank sign and alarm combo in Tamaqua PA.
