Product description

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 favourite 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.
