More about Lisa's book:
This inspiring, technique-filled book introduces a new approach to lettering, one that combines a lively combination of traditional lettering styles, fun and scripty modern styles, and artsy street-style lettering, along with project ideas that incorporate creative lettering.
Modern Calligraphy and Hand Lettering demonstrates the uses of traditional and cutting edge lettering tools, from classic calligraphy pens to bling-producing metallic foils and glue pens, as well as a wide array of lettering styles. A large collection of gallery images provides further inspiration for using creative lettering in artwork!
