This is a pretty well organised and put together little book. If you are interested in doing any lettering(whether on a chalkboard or on paper) this will be a good place to start.
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.

Amazing book. The inbuilt chalkboards are genius. The step by step tutorials are easy to follow, and my chalk writing skills have improved after just a couple of hours!

I love this book. Genuine, deep, affection. Valerie is obviously an amazing chalkboard artist, there is no doubt about that and one look at her Instagram confirms this.

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!

Just what I wanted. I prefer the 'raw' style of chalk. Lots of accents, letterings and step by step style, book is beautiful to look at too. Modern chalk techniques too. I hope to put a Chalk sign outside my house for people to enjoy, and even use it for political demos as a #chalktivist
