A collection of hand curated vintage hand-lettering books that cost over $10,000 to acquire. Delivered in high-quality PDF format.
Hand lettering and sign painting have experienced a resurgence in the past few years.
Designers that know how to do hand lettering get more jobs and make more money because it's in such high demand.
But learning hand lettering is time-consuming and hard.
Like any skill the best way to excel quickly and make great work is to build on a rock solid foundation.
Luckily, our good friend Jason Carne at Lettering Library has been curating a library of rare vintage lettering books worth over $10,000.
The Lettering Library Mega Bundle is a master class in the art of hand lettering and sign painting. With 117 rare books packed with real life exercises, lettering theory, inspiration, and plenty of diagrams and examples, you'll never need to buy another lettering book again.
When this bundle went on sale earlier this year designers and hand lettering enthusiasts went bananas for it.
Here's just some of the areas that the Lettering Library Mega Bundle tackles:
If you were to try to hunt down and buy these books yourself, you would easily spend over $10,000 (not including all the time it would take to find them)
If you were to purchase the PDF's from Jason any regular day they would cost between $500 and $700. These books are so dense with information it would be worth every penny. You can study and practice from these books the rest of your life.
But for a limited time, Jason gave us the okay to offer you this pack for just $197. That's 39% less than you would pay any other week of the year for the complete collection!
Last time this bundle was offered it was purchased by hundreds of lettering artists in just a few days!
Jason told me he won't be selling it again for this price for a LONG time (maybe never). So this is a no-brainer.
The Lettering Library Mega Bundle is your secret weapon to becoming a hand lettering genius. Grab it now!
Note: In case it isn't 100% obvious this pack won't magically make you a lettering genius. You'll need to put in the work. But each time you practice you'll know you have the absolute best resources available. Plus, you can even brag to your designer friends that you have a digital collection of rare books that are next to impossible to find.
Bonus: Download a FREE lettering book from the pack. Just this one book in the pack includes resources like working with pencils, brushes, speedballs, letter spacing, stylized lettering, calligraphy, and more!
Remember, this is just one of 117 books in the collection. You can own all 117 of them for just $197.
"I bought it within 5 seconds of seeing it (which is faster than I make impulse buys in the chips section of the grocery store). Treat yo self to this invaluable resource OR boyfriends/girlfriends of letterers: buy this for your type-obsessed significant other and win holiday gift giving for life."
"All my design, illustration, type friends... CHECK THIS OUT! Jason Carne has assembled the Avengers of type instruction and cataloging. This is an insane deal and you should check it out! Jason is the real deal."
"Lettering Library is a great source of inspiration for all typography artists and designers."
"Easiest decision I've made all year."
I think this is obvious, but just to be clear, this pack is a collection of 117 PDFs created from Jason's collection of authentic vintage lettering books. You are not buying physical books.
Note: The discounted price is based on the cost of these books if you were to purchase them individually from Lettering Library.

I'm obsessed with Beer Labels! So I thought I'd create a font that I thought appropriate. Oatmeal Stout is my favorite beer, so clearly the name came naturally.

With clean, rough, aged, rough aged, hatched, hatched rough, you get a collection of options that allow this to be your next go-to typeface for your branding needs.

That's exactly the reason why I decided to make this product. I've always been a stickler for finding the right sans serif to go with script. There needed to be a consistency in style, texture, weight, etc. I think that The Restless Youth Bundle is perfect for people looking for this aesthetic.
Every new typeface inspires new work. I think that The Restless Youth Bundle will be a great addition to your design arsenal!
We couldn't help ourselves. We wanted to contribute some goodness to this deal too. So we've added three popular RetroSupply Co. fonts for a little icing on the cake!
Palm Canyon Drive is a monoline script inspired by retro matchbook covers, travel postcards, Tikki bars and Hollywood. With a classy yet unpretentious tone, Palm Canyon Drive is as comfortable on a Tikki bar matchbook cover as it is on a Hollywood movie poster.

Get a new pack of grungy grimy brushes each week (four packs in total). A new pack is added every Thursday. But grab it fast – there's only 47 packs available!
The Garage Grime Vector Brushes are a set of four packs, each with 15 unapologetically gritty Illustrator brushes (including some no-stretch vector brushes) that will make your work look as though it was drawn on paper.
So we dug around in the grimiest, most rugged place we know: our garages. And it was there that we found 65-year-old old wax crayons, oil stains, grease drips and everything we need to make this vector brush pack.
Inspired by a pack of 1950s wax oil crayons we found just sitting in a garage – hence the name – these brushes recreate the rough, unfiltered sketches made by commercial artists in the mid 20th century, and will add that vital human touch to your designs and illustrations.
This was my first time buying a brush subscription pack and I'm glad I did. The brushes are easy to install and start using immediately. For me, these brushes make illustrator feel more organic. Thanks a lot. Can't wait for my next three packs!
Every week for the next 4 weeks you'll receive 15 new vector brushes (total of 60). Each pack will be unique and different, but they will all be garage grime inspired.
One of the packs will come with a limited set of bonus no-stretch versions of some of the brushes. That means no matter how long or short you make the stroke it won't look distorted.
The no-stretch brushes will be in addition to the 15 you get. For example, in the first pack (The Wax & Oil Vector Brush Pack) you'll get 7 no-stretch brushes in addition to the 15 standard Wax & Oil Brushes.
Each pack comes with an inspiring and beautifully designed brush reference guide. This makes it easy to see what each brush looks like. Plus, each reference guide includes the history behind the set.
We want you enjoy these brushes right away, so we've made easy to follow instructions with pictures. That mean's less time worrying about installation and more time creating!
If you've ever browsed through an old science textbook you've probably seen stippling.
Stippling was invented by Giulio Campagnola in approximately 1510. By using the same color but different densities and sizes of dots Guilio was able to create the illusion of different shades in illustrations (you can think of stippling as the great-grandfather of halftones).
This set of brushes created by illustrator/Photoshop brush wizard Alex Dukal makes recreating these stippling effects so easy it will seem like magic!
Packs like this could easily go for $50 or more. Even at that price the quality of the effect and time you save would pay for itself in one project. But Alex is letting us offer this pack to you for just $19.
That's right, for less than the price of a large pizza with cheesy sticks you can get what can only be described as the best stippling brushes known to man.
Grab the pack today for just $19!
This set of tools were made with the latest Photoshop CC, a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet and an old Wacom Graphire 4 using the default configuration. These brushes have also been tested with PS CS5.5 and CS6. Using another combination? The brushes will probably respond a little bit different, so be sure to take care of that.
If you're a font junkie like me, you're probably on a never-ending search for the perfect layered font.
Layered fonts have been used in hand printed work for over a century. Using multi-colored text, two or more cuts would be printed on top of each other to create eye-catching headlines, signs, and posters.
The Parts and Labor font family pays tribute to this traditional printing style.
Any designer worth their salt will tell you that well-crafted fonts are an investment NOT an expense. Fonts like this regularly go for $100 or more. I've spent as much as $200 for a layered type family.
Joe Andrus is designer, illustrator, and art director based out of Ontario, Canada. Joe has worked for snow and skate magazines, spent three years working as an art direction at a creative ad agency, and has run a successful studio for the past two years.
