Unlike a lot of lettering books, there aren't a ton of blank pages--I know it's annoying to get a book and realize it's mostly scratch paper. You'll get a nice walkthrough for each lesson consisting of a few pages each, and then a page afterward to practice on. I feel too wrong to write in my book, so I just use an extra notebook. :)
I recommend this book so highly, and I can't stop bragging about it. You won't be disappointed in the least.
When I copy anything from the examples in the book they come out OK, a bit shaky but I know the shakiness will go away with practice and gaining confidence in handling both the pen and your hand movement. But whenever I tried to hand letter my own phrases, there was always something off about them. I think the book is poor in giving readers skills they need to learn hand-lettering. I did not like that there is no anticipation of trouble that "readers" might have, so I found that I'm making mistakes that I can not even describe. The book is sketchy, scratching the surface of so many topics but not going into details in any one of them. I depended on myself too much when trying to learn how to practice the examples in the book- I would look carefully at my work and the example in the book and try to figure out how to improve my work. At the end, I found out that I needed to learn loads of detailed info about the anatomy of letters to be able to produce results that are pleasing to the eye.
I found the book entertaining but I learned much more from watching youtube tutorials.
I liked the chapter on principles of design and mixing fonts; I found them straightforward and helpful. The book opens flat and the paper quality is good for practicing on the book.
This book is for fun and not for the serious artist/crafter who wants to incorporate beautiful hand-lettered messages into their work
I would give it 4 starts if you want to get it aiming to spend a few afternoons having fun.
