Product description

This hands-on workbook is the ultimate tool for designers and creatives looking to tap into the trend of hand-drawn typography. Master letterer Mary-Kate McDevitt lends her expertise with tips (which pens to try, what styles are best for which applications), technical guidance (typographical terminology, stroke order) and tons of style examples to emulate from swooping scripts to distinctive drop caps. Dozens of practice sheets offer aspiring letterers plenty of space to learn and master a range of type treatments and flourishes.
