The Haupt Publishers sent us their new Handbook of Lettering made by Chris Campe this week for a nice little book review on our site.
About the Handbook of Lettering
Creating some own letters and illustrative fonts this is the perfect leisure time acitvity for every type lover. But what tools do I need for starting with lettering and first of all where is the difference between typography, calligraphy and lettering? The book is a perfect entry to the theme and it contains a lot of very good explained exercises. It won’t help yout with templates but it will train your eye, hands and lettering skills.
We recommend this book to professional designers who like to switch from digital to more handmade alphabets.
