Vintage Penmanship Magazines
from the Golden Age of Ornamental Penmanship
IAMPETH

The "Golden Age of Ornamental Penmanship", from 1850 to 1925, was a unique period in American calligraphic history. Beautiful penmanship was the rule of the day, and the flexible pointed pen was king.

Spanning the years from 1877 to 1912, this collection of magazines presents a wonderfully rich, in-depth view into the life and times of the penmen and penwomen that created these beautiful letterforms.

These magazines are in PDF file format, and we offer them here in their entirety for current and future generations of calligraphers, penmen and pen artists. We hope you enjoy them.
