DIY everything is in these days, and lettering your own signs, cards, and other things is a must if you want to be a creative genius. I LOVE art and crafting, but even I could use some hand lettering practice, which is why I requested this particular book to review.
I was worried that The Art Of Hand Lettering For Beginners would be difficult to follow (yes, it says it’s for beginners, but I’ve had drawing books for beginners that were difficult to understand). Luckily, it’s an easy book to learn from.
One of the things I really liked about this book is that it has lined pages for you to practice on. Of course, I invested in a lined dry erase board for lettering to practice on.
The second amazing thing about this book is that it covers more than one font style. You will learn various fonts, from basic to super-fancy. It also includes step-by-step instructions for some specific projects, including embroidered gift bags, coasters, and chalkboard sign lettering.
On top of all of that awesomeness, it also offers you some information on how to create your own personalized font!
This is a must-have book for all crafty folks out there.
I received this book for free from the publisher, and I love it!
