Creative Lettering: Techniques & Tips from Top Artistsby Jenny Doh
Synopses & Reviews
Hand-lettering techniques are a popular and visually dynamic way to add textual elements to crafts, from journals to mixed-media art. Sixteen accomplished contributors—including calligraphers, painters, collagists, card makers, fiber artists, and graphic designers—give their personal perspectives on lettering. They all offer their favorite tools, how they use them, their signature technique with step-by-step instructions and photos, and an alphabet sampler of their own font. Gorgeous gallery images of each contributor's work are also included.

In an increasingly digital and impersonal world, hand-lettering is more popular than ever. A way to personalize everything from book covers to T-shirts and restaurant menus, as well as a form of self-expression and cutting-edge design, writing by hand makes the written word immediate and intimate.
This beautiful and inviting book serves as an inspiring primer and an interactive workbook, covering:
Creative prompts encourage readers to invent their own serifs, make lettering from found objects, 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.
Creative Lettering was so popular that crafters wanted MORE. Welcome this fabulous follow-up to that bestselling book, featuring 15 entirely new contributors. Jenny Doh has gathered a variety of big names and talented up-and-coming artists, who all provide tips on their favorite forms on hand lettering and tools, along with complete alphabets and how-to projects based on their signature styles. With everything from posters and cards to signs, collages, and journals, this eye-catching collection will inspire readers as they create their own, personalized work.
