Dingbats, Ribbons and Ampersands

There is so much to love about Samuel Welo‘s 1927 Studio Handbook: Letter & Design (Frederick J. Drake & Co. Publishers). He was a prodigious letterer, typographer and designer who hand-drew and -lettered this chunky little tome for the art studio habitué.

There’s a so much to love, particularly the pages with ornaments, ribbons, dingbats, masks and other printer’s goodies designed for the designers of his day.
