Speedball, Italian-Style

Last January I published a Daily Heller on the joys of writing with Speedball Triple Reservoir Pens. Now for the Italian version. The pages here are from a 1929 textbook devoted to the Milan based Heintze & Blanckertz’s Redis-Tinter pen, touted as the best pen points for decorative writing. It takes a steady wrist and more than a bit of talent to make the writing look as good as it does here, but for some writers back then the results were possibly worth the pain of carpal tunnel.
