  • Fearless self-expression through playfulness
  • Embracing the creative process, including tips from top illustrators and the art of “sketchploration”
  • Inspiration for adding personal touches to any kind of handlettered text
Creative prompts encourage readers to create their own serifs, create lettering from found objects, make a type self-portrait, collage with found type, recreate a favorite book cover with hand-lettering, play with shading and perspective, and more.Featuring a lively (and hand-lettered) design and engaging exercises, the book will appeal to designers and illustrators as well as doodlers, hobbyists, and anyone who enjoys putting real pen to real paper.

If you're looking for a book to actually teach you how to letter this is not the book. This book has nice examples of different handwriting, but it does not show you have to duplicate them.  see moreof Lbenneking's review
