Note: I received an Advance Reading Copy of this book through NetGalley for an honest review.
After getting started with word doodles (see a previous review I did for The Art of Doodle Words) I quickly learned that I am really a beginner at hand lettering. I’m always jealous of the nice letter art I see online so a workbook like Hand Lettering A to Z Workbook by Abbey Sy sounded like something I could really use.
Sy starts the book by setting out the terminology used. Sy slowly explains all types of letters and fonts and then moves on to explaining the tools and techniques. After the long and detailed background information, the main part of the book contains several alphabets and a lot of room to practice all the letters and numbers. After the alphabets there are worksheets to practice several words, flourishes, embellishments and inspirational quotes.
This is a very complete book to get started with hand lettering. With so much information and room to practice it is a good introduction and I can say I have added some nice touches to my own journals.
