ABOUT







Charles J. Strong

Charles J. Strong (b. 1866, Hunstville, IL) was very influential in the sign and lettering world following the turn of the century. His text Strong's Book of Designs (1910, 1917, 1982) has been reprinted several times. The early editions had wonderful color plates. Strong founded the Detroit School of Lettering along with a mail order supply department. He also wrote Strong's Art of Show Card Writing (1919) and Detroit School of Lettering 1-10 (1905). The latter text consists of ten thin booklets.
