Yesterday we found a small package from the Philippines in our letterbox containing two fantastic sketch blocks and a little book called The ABCs of Hand Lettering made by Abbey SY and published by Summit Books.
About The ABC of Hand Lettering
At first sight the book promises a lot of creative lettering tips and tricks and by opening and reading it you won’t be disappointed. This is a trusty guide to learn step by step what it needs to become a real good lettering artist or to start a new wonderful hobby. It describes the differences between, serif and sans serif fonts, decorative and clean scripts, font weights and their value in the text content and of course a lot of examples of interesting hand lettering creatives. Along with that ou learn also something about using the different techniques and materials. At least it is on you finding and developing your own style.
We highly recommend the book to everyone out there wanting to start learning lettering, beeing annoyed of seeing only type and reading about it and wanting to practicing and expressing his own ideas on paper.
