My 1955 La Salle Elementary Bilingual Method Typewriting Course handbook mentions :
'The "La Salle Complementary Course" offers a complete 30-page chapter on artistic typewriting.'
There is also use of the word 'artyping'. My first encounter with it.
Here are some excerpts.
" We are pleased to mention here how greatly we are endebted to Mr. Julius Nelson of
Baltimore, expert sponsor of art-typing, for his personal guidance, and his generosity
in valuable and original specimens."
Oh, Julius! I'd love to see some of those original specimens!
