Adventures in Lettering-40 exercises to improve your lettering skills
Adventures in Lettering is the ultimate hand-lettering workshop for young creatives!
Even if you’re a total hand-lettering beginner or think you have “bad handwriting,” Adventures in Lettering is still for you! There’s a world of difference between regular handwriting (both print and cursive) and lettering. Hand-lettering is all about having fun and embracing the imperfections. Taught by the popular and skilled hand-lettering artist Dawn Nicole Warnaar, Adventures in Lettering combines creative self-expression and beautiful designs for an exploration of various lettering exercises.
This 128-page workbook features beginner hand-lettering lessons, from playing with style and brush calligraphy basics to illustrated hand-lettered designs and lettering styles. Once you’re comfortable with the basic techniques, apply them to additional crafts and projects, including:
- Your name in many styles
- Faux calligraphy
- Different alphabet styles
- Floral flourishes
- Watercolor and mixed media projects
- Greeting card and note card ideas
- Gift ideas
- Coloring pages to sit back, relax, and color
To do most of the exercise prompts in this hand-lettering guide, all you need are the basics: pencils, an eraser, and colored pencils or markers. And there are lots of places to practice right inside the book.
