George Abrams was a standout lettering artist in advertising’s golden age. He was known for his lively casual-script, but produced headlines, taglines, and logos in an impressive array of typographic and calligraphic styles. Charles Nix will describe the arc of Abrams’ career—concentrating on handlettering work from the 50s, 60s, and 70s—with copious images of both process and product.
