Lupfer name cards.. and a little surprise

Here are some name cards done by wizard penman extraordinaire, E.A. Lupfer.
This guy is just tremendous. Look at this signature.

A friend gave them to me, or maybe I got them from ebay. I don’t remember, it’s been over a year… I feel bad about not remembering.



It’s so funny to see famous names written by him. FB Courtney is another penman-deity hybrid. But that’s not what I wanted to show you… look what is on the back of two of these cards. I guess he didn’t like how he wrote Ida’s name!


And OMG a mistake?? A smudge? A practice he didn’t like? Not enough space to write ‘Courtney’? Well no matter what it was, I guess he is human after all!
