Das Buch beginnt mit einem kurzen Abschnitt über die Schriftgrundlagen. Hier werden Fragen wie „Was ist eine Serife, was bedeutet Sans Serif und was ist ein Haarstrich“ geklärt. Auch die Basics werden aufgegriffen. Was ist Faux Calligraphy und wie bekomme ich den „verstärkten Abstrich“ am besten hin? Zwei Seiten stellen Materialien wie Stift und Papier vor.

Maybe I'm dumb. I bought this hoping to reconnect with my inner calligraphy writer that I became when I was in eighth grade. I was pretty good then but have become rusty. I was not prepared to find the modern cool squiggles inside. I also didn't find the instructions to learn to be helpful. However the "fonts" in the back to learn were cute. A friend of mine picked up the art of modern calligraphy in minutes. Sooooo maybe it's me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ ...more

This is a very simple introduction to hand lettering and covers the very basics to get started in hand-lettering. I would describe this as a workbook, as it gives specific examples and lots of space for you to practice your own techniques, without getting too caught up with lengthy and unnecessary descriptions. Great for beginners!

This was very easy to follow and it didn't take that long for me to get the hang of each of the different styles and how to write in them. I've always wanted to learn how to do calligraphy, and this was a foot in the door for me into it.

Best way to learn hand lettering. Can’t recommend this enough for anyone looking to learn! 4 Stars because I would have liked an uppercase letter tutorial in this book.

A good beginner's guide, would have liked to have had smaller letters when doing the drills, these were very large and awkward, but overall, a nice tutorial guide. ...more

I checked this out from the library, so I didn't use the book in its intent as a write-in book. Still, I've always loved hand lettering and love seeing it used so often. The instructions were pretty basic in terms of the lettering. I would've liked to see more words and phrases demonstrated, but I suppose this is only meant to be an introduction. ...more
