Very interesting and informative for the novice!

I quite like this book. Originally I got it because I wanted to do chunky-looking cursive as I have seen some planner/journal geeks do on YouTube! It has a wide selection of lettering in it, including chunky-cursive.
It's very much a 'copy what you see' book but there are tips and stories from lettering creators to inspire you to create your own, but nothing comprehensive.
Nowadays I don't use it for journaling - you need patience for that. I self-publish handwritten content and I have used it to do quick, aesthetically pleasing titles and stuff. I have also started to write people's names on penpal letters using funky fonts with guidance from this. It's a good reference book. Before this book I only knew how to do bubble writing.
