Every now and then you come across a gem of a book where every page is a joy to look at. A couple of years ago I saw this book on ebay and picked it up for about $10. It’s called the Studio Handbook and was published in 1927 by Frederick J. Drake & Co a publishers from Chicago. Other than that I don’t know much more about it.
There are some amazing fonts in there, as well as a brilliant section of advertising layouts, like the one below. It was hard choosing which pages to highlight.
