1. CON - It's so friggin hard to read...like it's hurting my eyes to try to digest what is written on the pages because every single text in the book in in either a handwritten CAPITAL LETTER FONT, or in script!! And the lines spacing is very close together making it a strain to read. Like whattt?! I had to put the book down several times because of this frustration. If this book is ever reprinted, please consider using a standard san serif font and then script/handlettering so it stands out. Really takes away from the book. Less is more.
2. PRO - lots and lots of practical great quality content. If you can get past #1
3. Great guide for beginners to intermediate, with tutorials and practice pages
Overall: I don't know if I'd recommend it because #1 is a huge distraction for me. But at the same time I really want to improve my lettering so I plan to keep it.
Hope this helps :-)
-It does have a fair share of examples,but it has very little space for practicing. I would recommend using additional blank pages on top of the actual pages for you to be able to see through but not get the original page messed up, or making copies (solely for personal use of course) of the particular pages you would like to use over and over again for practice.
-In terms of the design of the contents, aside from the examples and practice spaces, all the theory is written in all-capital handwritten letters and with very little spacing, which makes it a pain for the eyes. It is a cute idea given that the book is exactly about that, but is unpractical once applied. This should have been reserved for titles or highlights.
Bottom line: I don't regret buying it but I definitely don't love it.
