Full of fonts, swirls, layouts, illustrations and so much more! It has everything needed to take you from a beginning letterer to a successful artist of the written word and not just in chalk!
Do yourself a favor and buy this book. I can't imagine anyone not getting at least something out of it.
The author begins by clearly and succinctly explaining different kinds of type-face, with a super easy description of serifs and flourishes. She uses simple language throughout, and builds on skills in easy steps. I not only learned a lot about working with chalk, I learned a lot about all decorative lettering, from how to write out different fonts to how to lay out a composition. I am truly astonished by how user friendly and useful this book it.
Recommend to anyone who want to work on lettering.
instructs, I was able to create a beautiful hand lettered quote. She explains step by step quite clearly what you need to know
to accomplish what you set out to do. I was completely amazed! I couldn't believe what I had just done. I bought two other books along
this one, and although there are some good ideas in them, they don't even come close to the quality that this book has. I am going to
have a hard time when it comes to erasing my quote, and I can't wait t try another one of the lettering styles the author teaches.
If you are interested in chalk art lettering this is THE book to buy!!! I would recommend it in a heartbeat, no hesitation here!
