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:
  • Typography basics, including history and trends
  • 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.Cristina Vanko;, Cristina Vanko
