For a couple of years now I've been talking about a re-design of the amazing resource The Esterbrook Project. All this time I've been helping Phil get a new version created. 


I started building a new site using the old information and realized there was so much more I was missing. So, I went back and gathered more information, more images, changed the editor, and now we have a new template which we think will work. 


It's still going to be a while before it's all constructed, but there's now a path and a plan. 


Here's a pdf of one of the first pages. 



“When the historians of education do equal and exact justice to all who have contributed toward educational progress, they will devote several pages to those revolutionists who invented steel pens and blackboards.” V.T. Thayer, 1928
