A wonderful book

I have at least 12 different lettering books and this one is one of my favorites. Not only does Shelley offer a comprehensive lettering guide she also included videos and downloadable practice sheets.

Highly recommend

Finally, a hand-lettering guide for those who've always wanted to try but didn't know where to begin. Right from the get-go, the author is quick to point out that fancy tools are not necessary (insert sigh of relief)!

Great book

I’ve see a LOT of “how to” books on lettering and calligraphy on the market. Let’s face it, it’s a popular topic. It’s beautiful, low tech and personal. But it’s also super daunting if you’re not even sure what an ascender is. You’ll know that and more after you read Shelley Hitz’s book Calligraphy for Beginners.

Good information

I was having so much fun writing the letters that I didn't even care when my girlfriend broke up with me! Seriously, I'm still using the book to perfect my technique and wouldn't trade it for anything!
