The B-Series nib made its debut in the 2ndedition ofThe Speedball Textbook®, in 1916. Like the A-Series, the B-Series has a bent end to form a “shoe” that can easily produce a uniform width line. Unlike its counterpart, the Speedball B-Series nib has a rounded finish that makes it ideal for creating sans serif letters without thick and thin lines.
Available in (8) nib widths, the B-Series is perfect for creating a variety of monoline lettering, drawn letters (e.g. Versals) and “built-up” letters, such as the Double Stroke Poster Roman. Suitable for use with any straight/classic stylepenholder.
*B Style nibs are sized with B0 as the largest, and B6 as the smallest
