This book was just placed in my hands, thanks to the publisher, and I am really pleased with this well done book! I'm kind of a calligraphy junkie, although truth be told, I have not put in enough practice time to call myself "good" at mark making, lettering and calligraphy, but I love the 'trying' to become good part!

"Creative Lettering" takes you through the basics of course; paper, pens, inks, paints & types of letters, but it goes far beyond the basics with sections written and designed (with accompanying projects and exercises) by some of the biggest names in lettering and calligraphy design today. Featured calligraphers include Andy Ainger, Francois Begnez, Flora Chang, Barbara Close ,Philippe Debongnie, Karyn Denten ,Aimee Dolich, Lisa Engelbrecht , Pam Garrison ,Stine Kaasa, Rhianna Lederman, Martha Lever, Linda Schneider, Jessica Swift ,Madeline Tomkins & Lori Vilegen.

I know that this book will become one of my "go to" books for calligraphic inspiration! It will live on the small bookcase that sits right on my design table, ready to pull out for a creative boost anytime that I feel the need!

If you are a lettering,calligraphy & mark making fan or an artist that just needs some added motivation, grab this book now ! It's a bargain and , yes, it really is that good - no kidding!

On the off chance that you have an adjustment as a contrast with the others. At that point might be this is the time in which you demonstrate the others about your adjust auto. Be that as it may, its extremely risky for our http://www.sopreview.com/faqs-on-statement-of-purpose-formatting/ and might be this is the best for you.
