Review quote

"Jessica Hische has condensed her remarkable story into a great resource covering every aspect of her trade as a lettering artist. The artist from Pennsylvania was hired straight out of school by her design idol, Louise Fili, based on a self-promotional project she sent to Fili. Hische then moved to New York City, where she worked day and night until she discovered her passion for lettering. The story is told in a confessional manner that perfectly echoes how Hische is when you encounter her at conferences: a whirlwind of talent, energy, and creativity. This inspiring and informative book is relevant to anyone interested in hand lettering." - Communication Artsshow more
