The Art of Doodle Words by Sarah Alberto

  • Read in: English


Note: I received an Advance Reading Copy of this book through NetGalley for an honest review.

Like many I am gripped by the bullet journal craze. I have always had notebooks, I find writing my thoughts down helps me clear my head and organize. I’m inspired by the beautiful spreads people post online. However, I have to admit, I am nowhere near that creative and don’t think I can be.

But, the book The Art of Doodle Words: Turn Your Everyday Doodles into Cute Hand Lettering! by Sarah Alberto turned up on NetGalley and I couldn’t resist. Who knows, maybe even I can do it. After a short introduction about tools, the book slowly starts teaching doodle words. It starts with a few simple alphabets with some examples on how to make variations on these examples. There is also inspiration on how to make gorgeous words with these alphabets. After that Alberto shows lots of examples of doodle words step by step so simple that even I can do it.

This is a fun book that really invites you to get creative yourself. After working through the examples I feel confident in designing some of my own doodles, and I have lots of inspiration for my own nice spreads in my journals.
