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.

New to #letteringlibrary - a book I’ve after since I started collecting almost 2 years ago. This one was in driving distance in not very far Canadenis, Pennsylvania about 30 minutes away. It’s always nice when you can pick one of these up in person and find one that belonged to someone from your area.

Henderson’s Sign Painter by John G. Ohnimus - 1906

This is number 3 on the American Sign Museum’s “Top 25 Early Sign Making Books” list, and it’s up there for good reason. I personally wouldn’t put it THAT high on my list but it’s a killer book nonetheless.

Great advertising on a large piece found at a county fair last week in PA. Unfortunately this piece was not for sale, bummer because it’s from a business that was from the next town over.

Hey @mrjacobira - any idea who Bert J. Dean out of Mendota, IL was? I bought a book recently and inside of were some contents from the original owner and it seemed he was some sort of aspiring or established penman. I figured maybe you or someone at IAMPETH may know!

New to #letteringlibrary this week, the neon bible. This had been an elusive sucker but I finally landed one, over 200 pages of neon ideas, layouts and technical information. It’s as awesome as it sounds.

Luminous Advertising Sketchs by Phillip DiLemme, 1953.

Close Encounters of the Snake Kind. Little Hognose we encountered today in Palmerton, PA along the Appalachian Trail. We went to get a stick to move him off of the trail but he slithered away before we came back. Cute little dude out hunting, good luck!

And a close up of that same Harley-Davidson piece.

Inks from a Harley-Davidson design from earlier this year. I have so much stuff I can’t show that I’m just pulling out older pieces lately. New designs and work coming soon!

Landed an absolutely pristine fruit crate label today with some seriously cool graphics and type.

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