B4305. Happy Hand Lettering /Taylor B4305. Happy Hand Lettering: An Inspirational Guide for Creating Beautiful Words of Life by Maghon Taylor. 2019. 144pp. 9"x10.25". Spiralbound.
Happy Hand Lettering is a colorful and fun guide to learning hand lettering, step by step, drawing inspiration from the Bible throughout. This book is packed full of traceable creative alphabets, and practice pages. It contains many practical ideas for creating handmade gifts such as ornaments, gift tags, and envelopes.
"Maghon's book is about making large letters by hand, joyfully, with a pointed marker, such as a Sharpie. She breaks it down for you and keeps it simple. The instruction moves at very manageable pace. It is like she is there talking to you, showing you, and giving you, each time, only what you need to know for the lesson, including some trace and copy exercise pages for each of the three alphabets you learn. The alphabet styles are common in more contemporary hand lettering; she calls them , my favorite, signature swirl, and print. The second half of the book is a collection of projects to use (and practice) the letters you learn. Each project is also a positive life lesson with inspiration from a passage from the Bible. For example, the "You are strong, bold, beautiful, and brave" project draws inspiration from 1 Thessalonians 5:11: Therefore encourage one another and build one another up."
