Rather than a how-to with historical hands, this book covers a broad range of more personal letterforms with many informal drawn letters. They range from doodled words to Linda Schneider’s pictorials with the pointed pen. The alphabets are contributed by calligraphers (including Barbara Close, Martha Lever, and Lisa Engelbrecht), painters, collagists, card makers, fiber artists, and graphic designers who present their perspectives on lettering. They discuss their favorite tools and how they use them to create the alphabets. Their techniques are presented with step-by-step instructions and photos and an exemplar alphabet. Includes examples of finished works. A great book for enlarging your repertoire of informal hands.
