Item details

If you do calligraphy or draw with pen and ink, you know the importance of good pens and supplies. Perhaps this set of Esterbrook pens and the La Violette book are what you need for your work as an artist. The book, "Modern Lettering Simplified," by Joseph LaViolette, has a copyright date of 1945 and was published by The House of Little Books. According to the title page, it includes "the fundamentals for brush, pen and pastel lettering used in making posters, window-cards and for reproduction." The set of 11 unused Esterbrook Drawlet Lettering pens (nibs) are still on their original card. They range in size and shape and include 5 found nibs, 4 square nibs, and 2 shading nibs.

As noted above, the pen nibs are unused, clean and on their original card. There are only 11 nibs; the smallest round nib is missing. The book is softcover and measures 11 by 8.5 inches. It has 48 pages. It is in very good condition with some wear on the spine and edges of the covers. It has a small stain on the front cover and some marks on the back but is unmarked inside.

If you would like additional photographs or more information, be sure to contact me.
