She gives simple explanations of different letterforms and styles and takes you through adding banners and fancies. If you work through this from cover to cover (and do the practise) you will have a pretty good background in lettering.
I have just started doing lettering projects and have bought a number of books to help me get started ad this one is one of the better ones.
But if you love hand lettering, or brush lettering, you will love this book! It is absolutely chock full, packed cover to cover with amazing fonts, banners, decorations, tips. Absolutely marvellous! I have had a go at chalkboard lettering and the step by steps in here were spot on! But I mostly use it for hand lettering on paper and it translates perfectly from chalk to pen.
Love this book! Love love love!
