Inspirational, colourful, got to love this book!
on 1 May 2014
I'm going to start with what I consider negative points about this book, and because it's written by an American, I shall try to stifle my "Englishness" when faced with twee sayings on every page. In view of what else it contains, that sounds like a petty criticism, so do forgive me. What is twee to some, is life enhacing to others. <unwedging my tongue from my cheek>
I loved this book so much. Loved the colour, the enthusiasm just oozes from every page, again the colour and pattern, and I can't go on about that often enough. I haven't really tried calligraphy in any shape or form, but I do love writing, and have great handwriting, so a book like this is one I shall be keeping next to my bed.
Today, I'm going to paint up some sheets of paper, dig out my assorted markers and get my butt into gear and WRITE!
You'll gather that my writing won't be containing the word "love" but the suggestion that you collect ads and stuff that inspires you from magazines has me digging around in my stack of old art mags.
Buy this book if you love colours, lettering, even if you don't care, still buy it. Can I say any more?
